University Health Care System Pops! Series

After careful consideration, Augusta Symphony has made the difficult decision to postpone all of the 2020-21 University Health Care System Pops! Series concerts to the 2021-22 Season. All options were examined, but due to the costs and licensing rights associated with Pops!, unfortunately neither in-person nor livestreamed concerts are a viable option this season given the current circumstances of COVID-19.

The Symphony is pleased to share that the four of the five Pops! acts are already confirmed for 2021-22: E.T. The Extra Terrestrial: Film with Live Orchestra, Brass Transit: The Musical Legacy of CHICAGO, Top of the World: Music of the Carpenters, and Dancing in the Street: The Music of Motown. However, Heartland: The Women of Country Music has been cancelled by the show producer, so we will substitute it with another wonderful concert. All dates will be announced closer to next season. Pops! subscribers have can choose to donate the value of their tickets, rollover their tickets to the 2021-22 season, or request a refund. Please check your email for more information.

Family Concerts at Columbia County

At this time, The Four Seasons concert remains on the calendar for May 2.

 

Fall Reimagined (August 2020)

University Health Care System Symphony Series

Subscribers who have already purchased tickets to this series can look forward to a menu of options by which to experience the first two concerts in October. Maestro Meyer has reimagined these concerts to accommodate smaller orchestras and shorter, intermission-free programs including a reduced Mahler 4, Barber’s Adagio for Strings, Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, and Jessye Norman-mentored soloist Laquita Mitchell.

Based on a limited number of patrons allowed in the Miller Theater at one time, subscribers can opt to attend the afternoon dress rehearsal, the evening concert, or the livestream of each of these concerts. Subscribers – check your email for a link to make your selection. Capacity is first-come, first-served, so please send your request as soon as possible or no later than August 7.

University Health Care System Pops! Series

In person Pops! concerts will resume in February of 2021, but the Symphony is thrilled to offer patrons who have already purchased season Pops! tickets access to two Pops! living room concerts to be recorded in October. Those with tickets to E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial Film with Live Orchestra as well as Brass Transit: The Music of Chicago should expect to see those offerings return next season, and can choose instead to view an Augusta Symphony Movie Music Pops! and Holiday Pops! in their own homes on their own terms.

Family Concerts at Columbia County

While loyal patrons of the Halloween at the Symphony Concert will have to wait until next season for this spooky family favorite, they can still look forward to The Four Seasons concert in May. And subscribers to this series will also have access to view Movie Music Pops! and Holiday Pops! as well.
