Dear MPO Supporters,

We have made the difficult decision to cancel our upcoming concert that was scheduled for this Saturday evening. Based on the recommendation from St. Catherine’s University and in consultation with the O’Shaughnessy, we determined that this was the safest course of action to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. This was a difficult decision, but ultimately, is the best way for us to prioritize the health of our musicians, our audience, and the community.

The O’Shaughnessy will automatically refund any tickets purchased for our concert. If you have already purchased tickets, watch for an email from the O’Shaughnessy ticket office with details. If you have any questions about this process, please contact the O’Shaughnessy box office at 651-690-6700.

At this time, we have not determined whether it will be possible to reschedule this performance. If we make any further modifications to our concert season, we will be sure to share an update.

This is the first concert in 27 years the MPO has had to cancel. If you are at all inclined and able to help us offset the costs we’ve already incurred for this concert, we are accepting donations at www.mnphil.org/support-us/. We are so grateful for your continued support and hope to see you at a future concert.

Stay safe and healthy,
The MPO Board of Directors
