What does this mean for my Violins of Hope tickets?
Your seats are secure and your tickets are being held on account as we work with our Violins of Hope LA co-producers to secure new dates. We are committed to presenting an artistically fulfilling and emotionally powerful series that will be worth the wait. You do not need to do anything at this time, as your tickets are kept on credit until the live performances in Long Beach. By keeping your Violins of Hope tickets with us, you will help mitigate the financial impact of COVID-19 on the Long Beach Symphony while automatically retaining your seats. While we plan to retain our original lineup of artists and repertoire, we anticipate announcing the final program and new dates later this spring.

 

What does this mean for my 2020/21 Classical or Pops subscription?
As a result of the season postponement, we have automatically moved your 2021/21 subscription package into the 2021/22 season. This will enable you to keep your seats until you are comfortable returning to the concert venues. By keeping your subscription in 2021/22, you will retain your seats for what will be a historic season of music while helping sustain the Long Beach Symphony until we are able to generate revenue through ticketed sales once more. We anticipate sharing the 2021/22 season programming with you in Spring of 2021.

 

Are there any concerts happening before Fall of 2021?
We don’t know yet. Additional performances may be offered during the 2020/21 season as single-ticketed events should local officials deem it safe.

 

Can I talk to someone about my tickets or subscription?
Yes, we are here to answer any questions you may have and guide you through this process. Please email us at [email protected], or call us at 562.436.3203 ext. 1 (Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.).
