We know you are eager to hear our plans for the 2020-21 season, and we appreciate your patience as we have worked over the past few months to determine the safest path forward. We have made the difficult decision to postpone the start of the season until January of 2021, at which time we will offer a shortened season of events throughout the spring months. This is not a decision we made lightly; we have reviewed research and recommendations from both local health departments and national organizations like the CDC. In consultation with University officials and other arts venues around the state, we feel this is the best way to ensure the safety of our patrons, students, employees, and visiting artists.
Unfortunately, we will again have to delay the performances of Jim Witter’s The Long and Winding Road (now rescheduled for Thursday, March 11, 2021 at 7:30 p.m.) and Beethoven Project 2020 (dates pending). Staff from the Box Office will reach out to ticketholders for these performances in the coming weeks to discuss the options for your tickets, though you may contact the Box Office at 608-796-3100 or firstname.lastname@example.org in the meantime should you wish to request a gift certificate or refund, or donate your tickets to the Stars of the Arts program.
January of 2021 will mark the 50th anniversary of the Fine Arts Center. We had been planning a year’s worth of performances to celebrate this significant milestone, though we will now need to scale back on those plans. Although we may have to delay the celebration a bit, we still look forward to welcoming you back to the Fine Arts Center as soon as we can in 2021 to celebrate 50 years of the arts at Viterbo. In early fall, you will receive information via mail, email, social media, and our website about the performances that will be scheduled for spring of 2021, as well as information about how you can purchase tickets, reminders of rescheduled events, and more.
We know this news is likely as disappointing for you as it is for us. Rest assured we will continue to evaluate safety measures such as enhanced cleaning protocols, hand sanitizer stations, physical distancing measures, and traffic flow patterns to ensure the safest possible experience for all patrons as we look ahead to 2021. As eager as we are to return to offering live performances, we will only do so when we can provide a safe environment.
Finally, we cannot thank you enough for your continued patience and support over the past few months. We know you’ve all had challenges of your own as a result of the pandemic, but you’ve all been kind, supportive, and accommodating with our staff, and we are truly grateful.
Stay safe and be well!
