 An Update from JSO about our 2020/21 Season 

Dear Patrons and Symphony Supporters,


The Jefferson Symphony Orchestra remains committed to prioritizing the health and safety of everyone in our musical community. However regretfully, we are sharing that due to the continuing COVID-19 crisis, all JSO-produced concerts at the Green Center have been cancelled through May 2021. While perhaps not surprising during these times, it is disheartening to keep our venues shut and not share the experience of live music with our audiences.


Previously, the Jefferson Symphony closed the first half of its 68th season through January 2021.


These new updates affect the following events:


February 14, 2021 – Winter Concert – JSO + Stas Venglevski, bayan accordion

March 21, 2021 – Young Artists – JSO + Daniel Gostein, marimba

May 09, 2021 – Season Finale: Carmina Burana – JSO + Evergreen Chorale  

In addition:

March 2021 – Young Artists Recital Fundraiser – featuring Daniel Gostein

May 2021 – Symphony Showcase – featuring JSO musicians, chamber music


"My personal hope is for a strong return in the fall and a terrific program for our traditional

October concert,” said JSO Principal Conductor William Morse.
