(March 12, 2020) Santa Barbara, CA The Santa Barbara Symphony has been keeping a close eye on developments related to COVID-19 (coronavirus) and is taking proactive steps to prioritize the health and safety of our musicians, visiting artists, employees, patrons, and our community at large. In consideration of, and in cooperation with, the Granada Theatre, our board, staff, and musicians, we have rescheduled An American in Paris from March 21 and 22, 2020, to June 13 and 14, 2020.
Ticketholders do not need to do anything at this time; please keep your existing tickets until replacements for the new date are received. If you are unable to attend on the rescheduled date, tickets may be donated back to the Symphony or exchanged for any remaining concerts this season. For customer service, subscribers may call the Symphony office directly at (805) 898-8396 and those with single tickets will need to contact the Granada Box Office at (805) 899-2222.
As we plan and prepare for the next several weeks, we will continue to assess the status of our current roster of events and will quickly provide updates regarding any additional changes should changes need to occur.
Rescheduling March programming is a proactive and protective step taken by the Symphony to support best practices recommended by healthcare professionals. Although we will miss seeing all of our patrons on March 21 and 22, we look forward to seeing you when the Santa Barbara County Health Department, the CDC, and all other relevant organizations lift the social distancing recommendation.
