Schedule update regarding COVID-19 concerns
Evanston Symphony Orchestra has been monitoring developments regarding the spread of COVID-19. In keeping with guidance issued by Illinois Governor J. B. Pritzker and state and local public health officials, we are saddened to announce the cancellation of the May 3 concert which was to be the last of our 2019–2020 season. We believe this is in the best interest of our ESO community — audience, musicians and staff. Please see additional notes on this website regarding our upcoming 75th anniversary season which opens October 25, 2020.
If anything changes, we will notify all patrons as soon as we can by email or phone at least 2–3 hours before the concert. Latest updates will be posted here.
