The Yakima Symphony Orchestra is thrilled to announce a return to the live performance stage on the weekend of April 17-18! Amazing Grace, a program of music for string quartet at The Seasons Performance Hall led by YSO concertmaster Denise Dillenbeck, will begin our 2020-21 performance series – click here for program information. Subsequent programs in this performance series featuring ensembles of YSO musicians will extend into July at various venues, with details to be announced soon. 

Due to distancing requirements and limited seating capacity, there will be three performances of each of our series programs at least through May. Attendance in-person to these performances will be limited to current YSO subscribers; for this first program in April, YSO Capitol Series and Classical Series subscribers will have access to in-person reservations. Those subscribers who are not able to attend in person will have the opportunity to view one of the performances via online streaming, and non-subscribers may purchase access to that online performance as well. YSO Pops Series subscribers will have access to in-person attendance at programs designated for that series beginning in May.

If you are a current YSO subscriber, you should receive additional information between April 8-13 about attendance, ticketing, safety precautions and other aspects of our performance series, and Capitol/Classical Series subscribers will receive instructions on how to reserve space at one of the three upcoming performances: Saturday, April 17 at 2:00pm; Saturday, April 17 at 7:30pm; and Sunday, April 18 at 4:00pm. If you are a subscriber and have not received this information by Tuesday, April 13th, please contact us by email at info@ysomusic.org or leave a message at our office telephone number (509) 248-1414 and we will be back in touch to confirm your preferences. Especially for this first program, space is extremely limited; not all subscribers may be able to secure their first choice of time and date, but we will do our best on a first-come basis to accommodate everyone who wishes to attend.  

If you are not a subscriber, instructions to access the streamed performance will be posted here.  

We appreciate your patience as we navigate the complex logistics of bringing our YSO musicians safely back to the stage during what we are optimistic will be the waning months of COVID-19 restrictions. We look forward to seeing you, in person or online, in the weeks to come! 

Watch this space for announcements coming soon for our next two performance weekends: May 8-9 and May 22-23
