Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra has announced the cancellation of its performances throughout the month of May, including its May 10 performance of Mozart’s Paris at the Norton Center for the Arts.

“We are very sad that our community will not be able to hear the incredible and professional musicality of the CSO this year,” said Norton Center executive director, Steve Hoffman.  “We will be in discussions to reschedule the orchestra for another time in the future.”

According to an announcement from CSO today, “In compliance with (Ohio) Governor Mike Dewine’s mass-gathering prohibitions and the recent directive to stay at home, and given ongoing travel bans, international quarantines and the continued disruption of normal business activity caused by the Coronavirus, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra announced today the cancellation of all CSO, Cincinnati Pops and May Festival concerts and events through May 31, 2020.”

The Norton Center box office will contact all CSO ticket holders by phone by the end of this week to arrange for donations or refunds.  All refunds will be made by check, which will be mailed within 15 business days of your request.

We look forward to bringing people together again soon! In the meantime, we are busy planning an exciting line-up of acclaimed classical artists, hit Broadway musicals, Grammy-Award winning performers, and much more for the 2020/2021 Season. We hope the community will join us and consider purchasing a season subscription to receive the best seats, deepest discounts, and exciting new perks.

Additional information regarding Norton Center events, including the 2020/2021 Season announcement, will be shared on our website and social media accounts. Please call the Box Office at 1-877-HIT-SHOW or 1-859-236-4692 with any questions or concerns.

Thank you,
