Dear Friends & Family,

Symphony Tacoma has been monitoring the evolving response and guidance from local and national officials regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus). We feel it’s important to update you on our current operational plan, in alignment with state and local public health professionals.

We are communicating daily with Tacoma Arts Live (manager of the Pantages Theater) and as of today, they have not made any recommendations to alter or cancel nonessential public gatherings. You can read their Covid-19 statement here.

Unless we are advised otherwise, we plan to present our March 21st concert, Ludwig AND Beethoven, as scheduled. Should conditions in and around Tacoma change that require us to alter our plans, we will notify ticket holders as soon as possible. We will also post updates to this message as they occur.

While our performances and programs are important to the fulfillment of our mission, nothing is more important to us than the health and well-being of our musicians, staff and patrons. In that spirit, we ask you to please take care of yourselves and others. Please follow Department of Health guidelines–and those of other reputable sources–for preventing the spread of this virus.

Thank you for your support of Symphony Tacoma.

Karina A. Bharne
Executive Director
