We’re sorry to announce...

Due to a rising number of COVID-19 cases, our venue for this season, the Thomasville Municipal Auditorium, has announced that it cannot safely open for concert presentations until possibly April or May 2021. This decision, along with rising concerns for the safety of our audience and travelling artists, requires us to cancel our scheduled concerts for the remainder of the 2020-21 season. If you purchased tickets for series concerts this season, those purchases will be refunded.

We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation as well as state and local guidelines. We look forward to presenting our cancelled artists during future seasons with all recommended safety precautions in place at the time of those concerts. At this time, our scheduled outdoor Family Series events remain on schedule.

We thank our loyal audience members, subscribers and supporters, and we look forward to sharing the magic of live performance with you again soon!
