2020 – 2021 Concerts & Fundraisers Schedule
Due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus, we have had to cancel our first two concerts of the concert year. It is hoped that we can continue with the remainder of the concert year as scheduled after January 1, 2021 As a result of grant received from the North Valley Community Foundation, all concerts of the regular season will be free admission. However, preferred seating is available by becoming a member of the Paradise Symphony Society. Thank you for your ongoing support of the symphony.
The Schedule for the 2020-2021 Concert Season is shown below. You may print this schedule, but due to the uncertainty of the times in which we live, it is recommended that you check this website frequently for schedule changes. Please note that our Concert starting time has changed to 6:00 pm for all concerts. We ask that all attendees be seated by 5:45 pm, to enable our ushers time to ensure that COVID-19 restrictions are being met. Masks and Social distancing requirements will be required and enforced for individuals and/or family groups until seated. Groups will be seated when all group members are present.
