On behalf of the entire Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association, thank you for being a valued part of our family.

Because of the COVID-19 public health crisis, it has become apparent that we will not be able to present fall 2020 programs as originally planned. Our highest priority is the health and safety of our audiences, musicians, visiting artists and staff. After careful deliberation, we have made the difficult decision to not resume our traditional concert programming before January of 2021 in accordance with the State of Illinois and City of Chicago recovery plans and in response to the current safety guidelines from public health officials. We are hopeful that we will be able to proceed as originally planned with programs at that time.

All of us share your disappointment at not being able to experience this incredible season as soon as we had hoped. We are continuing to explore the possibility of rescheduling affected programs in the future and to develop ideas for presenting smaller scale live and online performances this fall, with more information available in August. In the coming days, we will send you a short survey to ask your opinion on options we are considering. We appreciate your input in advance.

In the meantime, we are sharing a wide variety of content through the CSO From Home portal at cso.org/fromhome, as well as through email and social media. I hope you are enjoying these charming new videos created by Members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Chicago Symphony Chorus and Civic Orchestra of Chicago, as well as radio broadcasts and video performances from our archives.

Once again, thank you for your continued support of our organization and for your patience as we navigate these extraordinary circumstances. If there is anything we can do to assist you, please contact Patron Services via web chat at cso.org, over the phone at 312-294-3000 or by emailing patronservices@cso.org.

Wishing you well,

Jeff Alexander
Jeff Alexander, President
Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association
