A STATEMENT FROM THE READING SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA:

As the board and staff of the Reading Symphony Orchestra continue to monitor COVID 19/coronavirus developments in our area, the RSO has decided to cancel the first three concerts of its 2020-2021 season including September 26, November 7, and December 5, 2020.

“While we are disappointed that the Reading Symphony Orchestra had to make the difficult decision to cancel its first three concerts, we know it is the right thing to do for the safety of our patrons, musicians, and staff,” said David Gross, Executive Director of the Orchestra. “We look forward to getting back to presenting concerts as soon as it is safe to do so.”

“We do not take the decision to cancel the first three concerts of our upcoming season lightly,” said Michael Duff, president of the RSO Board. “But in light of the continuing uncertainty over the pandemic, our board unanimously determined that canceling these concerts was in the best interest of the RSO and our community.”

If you are holding tickets for a Reading Symphony Orchestra concert or any other local arts event that has been canceled due to current hardships caused by the health emergency, we politely ask you to consider taking a ticket credit or donating the cost of your purchase back to the organization in question. All of us in Berks County have entered into a period that no arts organization could ever possibly plan for – canceled performances and empty houses. Your small gesture of kindness could have a profound effect on the future of that organization, including the Reading Symphony Orchestra. We gratefully thank you for your consideration.

Ticketholders should call the RSO at 610-373-7557 to discuss their options.
