2020 Concerts

MAJESTIC ELEGANCE – JUNE 21 – CANCELLED

Given the rapid developments regarding COVID-19 management and control and the recommended action of social distancing, Symphony Central Coast regrets to announce the cancellation of their upcoming concert ‘Majestic Elegance’ scheduled for Sunday June 21st.

SCC is committed to ensuring the health and well-being of all patrons and musicians and this was a very difficult and disappointing decision to make.

Symphony Central Coast is working hard to ensure that we are doing all we can to mitigate the impact on the orchestra and our community and to ensure that our long-term survival and position as one of the Central Coast’s most important cultural organisations is sustained.

This is an unprecedented time of crisis for live music so we ask any ticket holders to consider a donation to the orchestra in lieu of a refund. Everyone who has purchased a ticket for this concert or a subscription will be contacted over the coming days to discuss the options.

We trust that life will return to normal at some point and we can get back to doing what we love doing which is providing you with a diverse range of live symphonic music and showcasing brilliant soloists right here on the Central Coast.

Bookings are being accepted for Concerts 3 and 4 at this point however depending on the progress of the virus containment measures they also may need to be cancelled. We are also considering an additional end of year Xmas concert on Dec 20.

We will advise as soon as there are any new developments.
