Coronavirus has forced the cancellation of the North Bay Symphony (NBSO) April 18th Brilliant Beethoven concert.
Ticket holders at the Capitol Centre have the following options:
- Donate your tickets to the NBSO for a charitable tax receipt for the full value of the tickets.
- Apply the value of your tickets to next season’s subscription.
"For the next several weeks, thousands of small and large concerts, theatre events, tours, readings, and other cultural events will be cancelled due to COVID-19.," says a Symphony news release.
"While this is disappointing to audiences, these actions can be financially devastating to many arts organizations and independent artists who rely on these events for their income. Please consider donating your tickets to any cancelled local cultural event."
To donate or apply the credit contact the Capitol Centre Box Office. Charitable tax receipts will be issued by the North Bay Symphony Society. Due to the higher than normal volume it may take several weeks to process all requests.
At this time “Joyful and Bright” Chamber Music Matinee at St. Andrew’s United Church on Sunday, May 24 is scheduled to go ahead as planned.
The North Bay Symphony String School will continue to offer private lessons.
“This is a challenging time for the NBSO,” stated Board President Rosalind Zimbalatti, “but we are a strong community orchestra and with your support, we will get through it. We look forward to welcoming you back to the concert hall in the future. In the meantime, thank you for your continued patience, understanding, and support.”
