St. Cecilia Music Center Announces Cancellation of Five Remaining Live In-Audience Concerts for their 2020/21 Season

It is with disappointment that St. Cecilia Music Center announces the cancellation of their remaining live in-audience concerts for their 2020/2021 season, which include five live performances scheduled from April through June 2021. The concerts were earlier announced during 2020 with the hope that live concerts with an audience would be possible in spring 2021.

While SCMC is looking forward to new and better news about holding live concerts in the near future during their 2021/2022 season, Covid-19 restrictions have prevented them from continuing their live concert performances with live audiences since March 15, 2020. All of these artists who were to perform also had to halt their tours due the Covid-19 pandemic.

The good news is that many of these performers have been rescheduled for SCMC’s 2021/2022 season! New dates for live concert performances at St. Cecilia Music Center will be announced in April 2021.

The Marc Cohn concert scheduled for August 21, 2021 does remain on the calendar at this time.

SCMC will continue to offer their wide variety of virtual performances through April 2021 that have been previously announced. All of these virtual performances are free to watch and include jazz, folk and the Chamber Music Society series. Click here to view the lineup!

The final live concerts that have been cancelled include:

  • Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center – The Brahms Effect – April 29, 2021
  • Sam Bush – May 6, 2021
  • Dee Dee Bridgewater – May 8, 2021
  • Watkins Family Hour – May 13, 2021
  • Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center – Sensational Strings – June 3, 2021

While reschedule dates are likely for many of these artists, St. Cecilia Music Center will not be holding over tickets for these concerts. People who have tickets to these events will receive emails with detailed information about refunds and/or converting the value of tickets into a gift card or tax-deductible donation to SCMC.

St. Cecilia Music Center’s mission is to promote the study, appreciation and performance of music in order to enrich the lives of West Michigan residents. The Center fulfills this mission by presenting visiting world-class artists in concert, providing music education for all ages through our School of Music and preserving a historic building for musical activities and community events.
