The San Francisco Symphony has canceled all remaining concerts in the 2019–20 season through August 31, including Summer with the Symphony, due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation. For more information, please refer to this press release.
Ticketholders are encouraged to consider donating the cost of their tickets back to the San Francisco Symphony, or to ask for a gift certificate for the value of their tickets. This helps support the organization as an arts nonprofit during this challenging time as we navigate the significant, ongoing impact of the COVID-19 situation.
In the coming weeks, the San Francisco Symphony will also announce special additional opportunities for those who opt to donate their tickets. Every ticket donation goes a long way in helping the San Francisco Symphony come back stronger and more vibrant than ever. As an added incentive, a group of generous San Francisco Symphony Board members and donors consisting of President Sakurako Fisher and William Fisher, President-elect Priscilla B. Geeslin and Keith Geeslin, former President John Goldman and Marcia Goldman, and Development Committee Chair Trine Sorensen and Michael Jacobson, has committed to match all ticket donations through an initial matching fund of $1M.
For those who opt for gift certificates, patrons will receive a 20% credit applied to their gift certificate based on the value of tickets they had purchased for use in future concerts. These credits won’t expire.
For those who are in the position to do so, please consider making an additional gift to support the San Francisco Symphony by visiting sfsymphony.org/give.
All requests for ticket donations, gift certificates, exchanges, and refunds must be received by August 31, 2020. For assistance, please contact the Box Office by phone at 415-864-6000 or email email@example.com. Box Office hours (for phone and emails only) are Mon–Fri: 10am–6pm. Box Office windows will remain closed through May 31.
A small number of concerts that have been previously announced as postponed will be rescheduled for a later date. Ticketholders for those performances may hold onto their tickets until a new date is confirmed. For a full list of those concerts please visit sfsymphony.org.
