BSO Announces Changes to Summer/Fall Performances

The Bloomington Symphony Orchestra Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to suspend full orchestra rehearsals and performances through October 2020. This includes our biannual appearance at Summer Fete, our annual outdoor concert at Arts in the Park, and the opening concert of the year, traditionally held at the beginning of October. We continue to plan for the rest of our 2020-21 season with the understanding that, as the dates approach, public health recommendations may require further changes to our schedule.

Out of an abundance of caution, we are shifting our focus to smaller ensembles that can allow for safe performance conditions for audiences and musicians. As we learn more about best practices which allow us to safely perform as a full orchestra in front of a live audience, and as the restrictions around social gatherings continue to quickly evolve, we will adjust our plans accordingly.  

We remain dedicated to our mission to enrich the lives of our audiences and musicians with outstanding performances of challenging, educational, and thoughtfully selected orchestral repertoire. While we are sad to lose this portion of our season, we hope to see you in person at live chamber music performances, or virtually, as we are planning some online experiences for our audience.

For now, keep an eye on our website and Facebook page where we will announce our plans. You can also sign up for our email list here or add your name and address to our mailing list to receive hard copy announcements by completing this form.
