The Grand Junction Symphony Orchestra (GJSO) announces, with much regret, the cancellation of our season finale concert “Ode To Joy” on Saturday, May 9th, due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the current “stay at home” order in the state of Colorado.
In an email to musicians of the GJSO, Music Director Charles Latshaw said, “I’m very sorry we won’t be able to mount these performances for each other and our audiences. For the May program, we’ve decided that it won’t be safe to rehearse and perform together in large numbers.”
The following options exist for current ticket holders for canceled concerts:
- Donate ticket value as a tax-deductible donation. Donations help secure the future of the GJSO in the community, and those that return tickets will receive a receipt for tax purposes, if requested.
- Exchange tickets to another performance. Tickets can be exchanged dollar-for-dollar towards new tickets to any upcoming concert between now and May 2021.
- Receive a credit for the full value of the original ticket purchase. Credits will be valid for any concert during the next season and can be applied towards any ticket purchase, including 2020-21 season subscription purchases and renewals.
- Refund for the full purchase price of the tickets(s). We understand that not every person is financially able to make a donation at this time and will gladly offer a refund to those that request one.
For refund, exchange, and credit requests, ticket buyers should contact the GJSO via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 970-243-6787 and leave a message. The cancellation of performances creates significant financial challenges for our organization. The GJSO appreciates those who consider an exchange, donation, or credit in lieu of a refund. Any donations at this time are greatly appreciated and help offset the huge loss to the organization.
