Gathering together to experience live performances or on-screen offerings is the heart and soul of what we do here at The Music Hall. We are closely monitoring the evolving crisis of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and following the lead of our state and local government health officials and the CDC guidelines on large gatherings.


  • In this time of crisis, there are many ways we can stand together as a community. If you are able, please consider supporting your local arts and culture organizations.
  • As a 501(c)3 non-profit, The Music Hall relies on your support year-round. Here are some ways you can help today: renewing or becoming a member, donating, buying gift certificates, or purchasing or keeping tickets to shows later in the year.
  • The Music Hall has weathered many storms over its 140 years. And with your help, we will weather this one too. We thank you for your patience and greatly look forward to seeing you at the theater when it’s safe to do so!

Update: Tuesday, March 17, 2020

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, we will be temporarily closed to the public. We will reopen when it is prudent and safe. We will suspend in-person box office sales for this time. When we reopen, we will be following CDC guidelines on gathering size. Thank you for your support and understanding.

Please Note

  • We will contact ticket buyers directly about a show cancellation or reschedule
  • For questions about our ticketing policies, please contact our box office and we’d be happy to help you
  • As with any infectious disease, avoid public gatherings if you are concerned that you might be contagious

Thank you for your continued support and patience as we navigate this.
