May 10 Concert cancelled

Dear patrons and friends,

We thank you for your support and patronage of our 2019/2020 season. In these difficult times of the COVID-19 pandemic, we regret to announce that our final concert of the season, “In Nature’s Realm” scheduled for May 10th, has been cancelled. This is following the decision by the City of Burlington to suspend cultural events until June 30th in order to protect the health and safety of our patrons, the community and our musicians.

If you purchased tickets to our May 10th performance, the Burlington Performing Arts Centre will be issuing you a refund and no action is needed on your part.

If you wish to continue supporting our orchestra in these trying times, we ask that you please send your donations in cheque form by mail to: 1100 Burloak Drive, Suite 300, Burlington ON L7L 6B2 or donate online using the link below.

Like you, we are saddened by this turn of events. In these difficult times, we are choosing to focus on better days by looking ahead to our next season. We have turned our attention to the 2020/2021 performances and are putting together a lineup that will not disappoint. We are adding a 5th concert and will be dedicating our first performance to Beethoven’s 250th Birthday! We look forward to sharing our new lineup with you and seeing you in the fall at our next performance. In the meantime, stay healthy, stay well and stay in touch through social media.

Thank you again for your support and patronage,

Anda Protopopescu, President of the Board
