Hartford Symphony Orchestra cancels 2020 Talcott Mountain Music Festival 

Hartford, CT (May 18, 2020) – In response to the impact of COVID-19 in Connecticut, and the current state-mandated limitations on social gatherings of more than five people, the Hartford Symphony Orchestra has made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Talcott Mountain Music Festival, which was to be the Festival’s 25th anniversary season. 

During this unprecedented time, the HSO’s top priority is to conform with federal, state and local regulations regarding public gatherings, crowd size, social distancing, and all related factors to ensure its employees’ and the public’s safety at all HSO events. This is the first time in the organization’s history that the entire festival has been cancelled. 

“We know how disappointing this cancellation is to our Talcott audiences, the Simsbury summer business community, and beyond. This summer’s festival, our planned 25th anniversary, was particularly meaningful and celebratory, featuring a stellar lineup of concerts and guest artists,”” said Steve Collins, Hartford Symphony Orchestra Executive Director. 

“While this loss stings, rest assured we will reschedule the 25th celebration season in summer 2021, regulations permitting, and in grand style,” he continued.  “Looking forward, our hope is that we are able to provide outdoor community concerts featuring HSO chamber ensembles later this summer.”
