Due to COVID-19, the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony has decided to celebrate its 75th season a year later.
It means the program planned for 2020/21 will shift by 12 months and instead be presented during the 2021/22 season.
The symphony is also working on plans to create live streamed video concerts from Centre In The Square, beginning in September.
"Shifting all of the programming by a year allows audiences to enjoy the original 2020/21 concerts presented as they were intended. It also allows us to fulfill our commitment to our subscribers and maintains the integrity of the artistic product, which is beneficial to both audiences and artists." said Andrew Bennett, executive director of the K-W Symphony.
A sampling of new 2020/21 programming includes Mozart's final and most famous symphony, No. 41 nicknamed Jupiter, symphonies by Beethoven and Mendelssohn, as well as special guest artists like Canadian singer/songwriter Royal Wood and crooner Michael Vanhevel.
Subscribers that have purchased their tickets for the 2020/21 season can have their subscription transferred to the 2021/22 season. Full information including additional options for subscribers can be found at kwsymphony.ca.
