UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 9
After an eight-month hiatus from performing, the Huntsville Symphony Orchestra (HSO) will be back with a powerful message of hope for the 2020-21 season:
- Two new Fall Festival Concerts will bring live music back to the community
- The 20-21 season will resume on December 31, and most fall concerts will be rescheduled
- Dollar-for-dollar matching gift for fall Annual Fund donations
The HSO is returning to the stage! It will just look different. We are proud to announce two Fall Festival Concerts to be performed in the Mark C. Smith Concert Hall at the Von Braun Center with safety as our top priority. These two concerts will be around an hour each to avoid an intermission, the audience and musicians will be socially distanced, and masks will be required. The first Fall Festival Concerts will be offered to the community completely FREE, and will also be streamed for FREE. Subscribers will be offered tickets first, then additional seats will open up for public reservation. The second Fall Festival Concerts will be FREE for subscribers, then we will offer any additional seats for $25 each.

From Gregory Vajda, Music Director and Conductor, “The HSO staff and I are excited about being able to present live concerts to you soon, in a safe environment. We are all looking forward to returning to the stage.”
We are thrilled to announce that the Huntsville Symphony Orchestra Foundation has generously offered to match donations to the HSO Annual Fund up to $75,000 through December 31, 2020. The on-going support of our community inspires us all.
It is because of our donors and ticket buyers that the HSO is able to fulfill its mission of bringing fine music to our community, even with the current challenges. The Huntsville Symphony Orchestra has been here for decades, and we will continue to be here for our community as safely as possible!
The HSO office will be closed to the public until further notice. You can still reach us by phone (256.539.4818) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) during normal business hours.
