An update from The Cleveland Orchestra’s President & CEO, André Gremillet:
Below you will find important news and information concerning The Cleveland Orchestra’s Miami concerts in January 2021.
The ongoing and evolving crises of recent months has affected all of us and challenged everyone to address what is truly an unprecedented level of uncertainty for the future. In light of current circumstances, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Orchestra’s residency in Miami in January 2021. This cancellation is for The Cleveland Orchestra concerts only, presented in partnership with the Adrian Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, due to the highly likely inability for the Orchestra to travel to South Florida in January.
While we are deeply disappointed The Cleveland Orchestra won’t be performing in Miami this coming season, I am glad to share that our subscribers and donors will be able to stay connected with the Orchestra directly from their homes through a series of digitally-streamed live concerts from Severance Hall in Cleveland. As a special thank you for their support, subscribers and donors will receive free access to these streamed concerts. Details about this series of Cleveland Orchestra concerts and how to access them digitally will be shared in September.
The Cleveland Orchestra is already planning to return to Miami in January 2022 to resume this longstanding partnership with the Arsht Center and serve our loyal patrons in South Florida. We will announce more specifics in the coming months and will be sure to communicate those details as they are confirmed. For our 2020 subscribers, your seats will be held for the 2022 concerts and renewal information will be sent to you before the 2021-22 concert season.
Even in troubled times, the mission of The Cleveland Orchestra doesn’t change. Through music, we offer solace and respite from each day’s challenges — and inspiration and hope for the future. And at this exceptional moment in history, your continued commitment and support — through your ticket purchases and your donations — has never been more important. With your continuing help, enthusiasm, and dedication, I know that the performing arts everywhere will rebound successfully, and The Cleveland Orchestra will return to creating unforgettable live musical memories in Miami!
With deepest gratitude,
President & CEO
The Cleveland Orchestra
