When the BPO planned its two-year celebration of the 250th year of Beethoven’s birth, we never expected that the seasons would be disrupted by a pandemic. Even as we announce our 2020-2021 season, we are unsure of how the next twelve months will play out. No, the show does not have to go on at all costs. Your health and safety are paramount. But we go on because we know that there is a deep human desire for us to be together. Our mission is to "build community through the power of live music," and we endeavor to fulfill that mission.
We begin the 2020-21 Season with some general admission concerts that allow for social distancing, if necessary. By mid-November, we bring the full orchestra back on stage and continue The Beethoven Cycle with the great 4th and 5th Symphonies, ending in June with the magnificent 9th.
We are cautious. We are excited. We are looking forward to a time for all of us to be together again. And above all, we can’t wait to continue fulfilling our mission of building community through the power of live music!
Come join us as soon as you can!
