Northwest Indiana Symphony Announces Schedule Changes

 The Northwest Indiana Symphony is taking a very cautious approach to planning the 2020-21 season, as well as determining how we engage Maestro Muspratt, Symphony guest artists, our musicians and members of the Symphony Chorus

   Going forward, South Shore Arts and the Symphony are committed to exploring new avenues for providing Northwest Indiana with a musical platform including chamber music concerts, virtual content, online instruction for Youth Orchestra members and individual performances by our Symphony musicians.  We hope to make a triumphant return to Living Hope Church for a full concert season, recognizing that we may have to adapt our programming to accommodate a flexible schedule that might include a new vision, smaller formats and accommodating audiences in compliance with prevailing laws and updated requirements.

     Please continue to invest in our future and help us work our way through these unprecedented times. If you have purchased tickets for “Carmina Burana” and/or “West Side Story in Concert,” we are asking that you consider making the price of your ticket a fully tax deductible donation. Or, if you prefer, we can issue you a refund. We cannot guarantee that either of these concerts will be rescheduled in the coming season.

     All donations and refunds need to be processed by June 30, which marks the end of our fiscal year. You can call the Box Office at 219/836-0525, ext. 200, leave a message and they’ll get back to you—or you can email them at tammie@nisorchestra.org to communicate your wishes. Please be aware that staff is still working remotely until June 15, and will return your call as soon as they are able
     Feel free to leave a message with our box office if you have any questions or concerns or if you would prefer a refund. You can reach them at 219/836.0525 ext. 200. You also can follow current updates to the Symphony schedule on their website at www.nisorchestra.org.
     Staff continues to work from home, and Maestro Kirk is busy working and sheltering in Crowsnest Pass, his hometown in Canada.
We all talk every week on ZOOM and look forward to the next time we can gather together.
