You are our top priority!

As we prepare for a season of limited capacities and physical distancing in venues, we are making updates and enhancements to subscriptions. New for 2021: All access – all season subscribers will have access to our ENTIRE planned season with abundant flexibility. With a plan for reduced capacities, subscribers will be seated first and more!

Our commitment to you in 2021: Safety and comfort: We are committed to presenting concerts that meet local policies for health and safety. We are working with our partner venues to develop plans and procedures to make your (and our musicians’) experience as safe and as comfortable as possible.

First to know:  As we all adapt to the changing landscape in our community, you will be the first to hear about changes or additions to our season calendar.

Always listening: We want to hear from you, and will be in touch with you regularly as we get closer to the start of the season programming.

Most of all – thank you for standing by us and our musicians and for your crucial support as a VSO subscriber. We look forward to sharing music together soon!
