2020/2021 Covid 19 Season Update

Updated : December 2020

It is with heavy hearts that we share our decision to cancel our previously announced plans to potentially resume operations in January 2021. We will continue to evaluate the public health recommendations each month to explore potential performance opportunities in 2020/2021. All of us here at the CSO feel your disappointment! Music is the life-blood of who we are—and that is why we remain fiercely committed to bringing live performances to our audiences as soon as it is possible and safe to do so, as health regulations allow.

We are planning to explore chamber performance opportunities in smaller venues across the HRM, for audience sizes aligned with public health regulations. In collaboration with the musicians of the CSO, Music Director Peter Oleskevich, and Assistant Conductor Melissa Doiron we are developing programs that are reflective of the current environment.

While we redefine what this coming year will look like for all of us, we can also look further ahead to what we believe will be a monumental 47th season in 2021/2022. 

We would like to thank our community for your support and commitment. We look forward to seeing you soon.
