Covid-19: Health and Safety at the WSO
Updated: September 2020


Reimagine 2020


Although we are not able to gather for live performances, that doesn’t mean the music stops!


This Fall, we will continue to offer music through our exciting new Digital Concert Series, a new education program designed for easy use by teachers and students, and a special digital concert series just for kids, which will begin in January 2021.


Our plans for the Spring of 2021 will depend upon the requirements and guidelines set by public health authorities related to COVID-19. While we would love to perform live before an audience, we will only gather when it is safe to do so. Our priority is health and safety – yours, as well as that of our musicians, staff, and volunteers.


We are grateful for federal support through the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy and emergency funding provided by the Canada Council for the Arts and other public funders.


We thank you, the friends, sponsors, subscribers, and ticket buyers, for your support and commitment. We look forward to seeing you virtually soon and in person when it is safe for all of us.
