Sustaining the HSO during COVID-19

Sustaining the HSO during COVID-19


To our Generous Supporters,

The Hartford Symphony Orchestra, like so many other great arts institutions, is exercising an abundance of caution during this public health crisis and our administrative staff have put measures in place that allow us to continue our work remotely while The Bushnell is currently closed to all activity.

Even though our performances and events have been cancelled or postponed in accordance with Governor Lamont’s directive, the “show” must go on. We are creators, improvisers, innovators. While we cannot control Covid-19, we can respond to it with imagination and determination. Historically, the world’s most transformative art has been created out of struggle and perseverance under difficult conditions.

As lovers of the arts, the Hartford Symphony needs you now more than ever.  Behind closed doors, our staff continues the work of this great institution.  We are still busy planning performances, selling tickets, designing beautiful publications, and preparing for an historic 25th season of the Talcott Mountain Music Festival this summer. When the stage lights come up once again, we will gratefully reveal the fruits of our labor to you, our loyal supporters, who have walked this journey with us.

For years we have said that music builds community.  Now, more than ever, we feel that music is community. Music possesses the rare and immense power to lift spirits, cleanse the soul, and bring us all together under a common language.

The Hartford Symphony and our community are a team. Successes are sweetened and defeats softened because we experience them together. And at a time like this, we want to say sincerely, thank you for being on our team. We hope you will walk with us hand in hand though this difficult time and enjoy the beautiful future on the other side.

As we are temporarily without ticket revenue, your support at this time is crucial.  Please consider renewing your support now, making an extra gift, or choosing this time to pay your outstanding pledge to our Annual Fund to help maintain our operating needs.
