Beginner Clarinet - April 28 2020


The Sioux City Symphony Orchestra regretfully announces the cancellation or postponement of the two remaining SCSO concerts, Gala Fundraiser, and upcoming May auditions for the 2019-2020 season.

  • Although originally postponed, the March 14th Beethoven Concert has been cancelled.

  • The April 25th John Osborn Concert and Gala Fundraiser have been postponed. Future scheduling of these two April events is pending for later this year.

  • May 15 & 16 auditions are postponed. Any future auditions we hold will be advertised on musicalchairs.info and our website.

Given the rapidly changing situation as well as the CDC’s and Governor’s recommendations limiting the size of gatherings, we feel this decision, although difficult, is necessary. We are committed to do our part in slowing the transmission of COVID-19.

There is no higher priority to the Sioux City Symphony Orchestra than the safety of our guests, musicians, and staff. Thank you to everyone who has reached out with continued support for the SCSO during this difficult time. We are so fortunate to be a part of such a terrific community that has shown us the utmost patience, understanding, and encouragement. Your continued support is vital to help us enrich all of our lives through symphonic music.
