Coronavirus Information

At its heart, the symphonic experience is about what musicians and audiences create together, whether in the concert hall or separately in our homes. That's why we are working hard to find creative, safe ways to continue creating and educating.

Office Safety

We are working remotely to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, and currently our offices are closed to the public. During this time, calls to our main phone line will go straight to voicemail, and messages will be routed to the appropriate staff member. You may also email us at

While our offices remain closed, tickets may be purchased online by clicking here, and donations may be made online by clicking here.

Virtual Concerts

While it remains unsafe to gather in person, we will continue streaming concerts online. Unless otherwise specified, you must create or log in to your KSO account and reserve tickets in order to access the concert stream from your Digital Content page.

Ticket Prices

We've introduced a new pricing model for a number of concerts this year called Name-Your-Price, which allows guests to determine their own ticket price at checkout, often as low as $0. Some of these concerts may include a suggested and/or minimum price. There are additional details on our ticket information page.

We look forwarding to sharing music with you through the KSO digital experience!



We encourage everyone involved with the symphony to follow the virus prevention recommendations made by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The KSO follows CDC, Michigan Department of Health & Human Services, and Michigan OSHA guidelines for our business operations and when we gather musicians to record concert material. We also will follow those guidelines for in-person concerts, when gatherings are approved. All of our concert recording venues follow the same standards and the KSO's rigorous safety protocols.


Our current decision to halt our in-person, traditional concerts is based on the guidance offered from official sources, and we hope you also will make use of their expertise:

We also are in consultation with the League of American Orchestras and other symphonies. 

Our mission centers around serving the community, and one way we can do that is to do our part to guard the wellbeing of everyone in our area. We welcome your questions and comments through our website, social media channels, email, and by phone. Thank you for your continued trust and support.
