Dear Redlands Symphony Patrons,
We at the Redlands Symphony hope you and your loved ones are well and making the best of this difficult time.
Due to the continued challenges the COVID-19 pandemic poses, the Redlands Symphony Board has voted to cancel the May 2, 2020 concert. They did so with careful consideration for the health and safety of our patrons, players, and staff.
As you recall, earlier this year, we announced that the March concert was postponed due to the outbreak of COVID-19, but not canceled. It is still our hope that we will be able to reschedule the March concert this fall. However, because so many organizations will be attempting to reschedule events later in the year, the Board made the decision to cancel, rather than postpone, the May concert.
As with most non-profit organizations, the Symphony is facing trying times and the donation of your tickets would be greatly appreciated. If we don’t hear from you by June 15, 2020, we will assume you want to turn your tickets into a gift. Ticket donations will be acknowledged for tax purposes by a letter from the Symphony.
We miss having you in Memorial Chapel listening to the music provided by our wonderful orchestra, led by Maestro Ransom Wilson. We look forward to welcoming you back to your seat this Fall.
Thank you for your continuing support.

Our Brahms Concert on 03/21/2020 is being rescheduled
Like all of you, we at the Redlands Symphony have been closely following developments about the coronavirus. We have been tracking the daily updates from the city, county, state and federal agencies involved in safeguarding public health. Our information gathering has also included keeping up with any policies required by the University of Redlands and meeting with members of our board.
Based on the most recent directive by the State of California and the University of Redlands limiting the use of Memorial Chapel for groups our size, the Redlands Symphony concert on Saturday, March 21, 2020, will be rescheduled.
Currently, we do not have a new date for the March concert. As soon as we do, we will do our best to give you ample time to plan. Please save your tickets. You will be able to use them at the rescheduled concert.
As yet, no decision has been made about the May 2 concert.
This determination has been made with an abundance of consideration for the well-being of our patrons and the larger community.
As we move through these challenging times, we encourage you to be extra mindful of your personal health and follow the CDC recommendations to:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Wash hands with soap and water for 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
- Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth, especially with unwashed hands.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using regular household cleaning spray or wipes.
- During the coming weeks and while this challenge is still before us, we hope you will do everything possible to maintain your own good health.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation,
Chair, Redlands Symphony Board of Directors
President & CEO, Redlands Symphony
