Auburn Symphony moves online for rest of 2020

Because of the ongoing health concerns and regulations surrounding COVID-19, the Auburn Symphony Orchestra will not perform any live concerts through at least December 2020.

Throughout the fall and winter, the sSymphony will professionally record chamber ensemble performances and make the videos available digitally.

Current subscribers to the 2020-21 season can roll over their subscriptions to the 2021-22 season, donate their subscriptions to the orchestra to support the digital endeavors, or request a refund. The Symphony staff will reach out to subscribers in the coming weeks.

The Symphony already has a number of digital offerings patrons can enjoy from home. For Symphony Sundays, it releases a different live recording from the archives each week with a video introduction from a member of the orchestra. Audio and video links are updated weekly at

The Symphony has also been collecting education links to help students and anyone who is curious to learn from home. The latest content can also be found on the Symphony’s social media pages: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.

Auburn Symphony will be monitoring the health guidance and will continue to evaluate how to bring music to the community while prioritizing health and safety. The Symphony is committed to remaining creatively connected to the community.
