Ode To Joy: Beethoven & Beyond

Update, 11/30/2020: In response to the coronavirus pandemic, we have regretfully cancelled concerts and events that would have taken place in February through May 2021. This includes all previously scheduled Madison Symphony Orchestra concerts, Education and Community Engagement Programs, and Overture Concert Organ performances through May 2021. Our June 2021 Concert on the Green remains on our schedule at this time.

MSO season subscription ticketholders will be offered the option to donate their tickets or receive a refund. Read our press release for more information. You can also read more about how we’re responding to current events by visiting our 20/21 Season FAQs, 2020 Q&As and Current Schedule pages.

We all look forward to a new beginning with John DeMain and the orchestra in September 2021. Please stay tuned for our plans for next season. In the meantime, should there be a breakthrough opportunity to restore any of the cancelled concerts and events to the schedule, we will be prepared to do so.
