Ticket Guide

Series Subscriptions for the 2020–21 Season are on sale now.
Single Tickets on sale date to be announced.

Notes on the 2020–21 Season

  • We’re working now with staff at the Veterans Building to make sure that concerts will be performed under the established safest possible conditions. We’ll adhere to practices set at the city, state, and federal levels for social distancing and cleaning protocols. Conversations are ongoing and we’re considering all aspects of the concert experience, from seating and ticketing to frequency of cleanings and traffic flow in the building.
  • The 2020–21 Season is moving forward as scheduled. The performances as listed in our brochure and on our website are all expected to take place. We promise to keep you informed if circumstances change. Even as our environment changes rapidly, we’re committed to letting you know the very latest as soon as we know.
  • We offer many ways to stay connected. Our website will always have the latest details on the concert schedule and any new protocols. We will also email patrons with relevant updates. And, while it’s no substitute for a live experience, our digital concert series Front Row offers a way to enjoy past programs and new works created specifically for SFP at this time.
  • Gathering for a live performance may look a bit different, but the sounds—from inspirational performance to rapturous applause—will be the same. Friendly staff will still be smiling behind the masks, and you’ll still be among friends in an environment that safely reunites you with your favorite artists. Now more than ever, your support is deeply appreciated, and we look forward to seeing you very soon.
