San Francisco Symphony Cancels 2020-21 Mainstage Season

By Francisco Salazar

The San Francisco Symphony has announced the cancelation of its 2020-21 season.

The orchestra also announced that new digital programming for January–June 2021 will be announced at a later date and that if live concerts in Davies Symphony Hall become possible, the San Francisco Symphony will announce new performances accordingly.

“By canceling these performances, we are able to turn our full attention to investing in the creation of compelling and timely digital content and experiences that both fit within required safety guidelines and take advantage of them as a catalyst for innovation. As we look ahead to 2021, we will continue to take a flexible, collaborative approach to identify areas of opportunity, and planning meaningful projects that serve our community and excite our audiences,” the orchestra’s CEO Mark C. Hanson said in a press release.

The Symphony has a number of digital performances scheduled for the month of November and December including a Holiday concert.
