Barnstable Performing Arts Center closed to help prevent the spread of COVID-19
HYANNIS, MA—March 30, 2020
In a measure of continued safety, the Cape Symphony has canceled its May 2 & 3 performances of Visions: Mozart and Mahler as the Barnstable Performing Arts Center remains closed amid health and safety concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
“This is such an unfortunate situation, and as with other non-profit organizations, we are facing a serious financial threat. We are focused on the safety and wellbeing of our staff, musicians and customers, but we are also concerned about the financial future of the Cape Symphony,” said Ellen Dickinson, Board Chair of the Cape Symphony & Conservatory.
The organization has provided three options for May concert ticket holders: donate their tickets back to the organization as a gesture of support, accept credit for a future concert or series subscription, or request a refund.
“If people are able to donate their tickets back to us, that would be a wonderful gift in this difficult time,” said Dickinson. “We know that this is a challenging time for everyone, and so we are setting aside our non-refundable ticket policy to provide our customers with that option.”
Ticket holders will have until June 3, 30 days after the original concert date, to make a decision about their tickets and notify the Cape Symphony Box Office. Anyone with questions may contact our Box Office at 508.362.1111 or email
