March 19, 2020 | PBO has put all ticket sales on hold. Every day PBO cannot not sell tickets is a loss of revenue. Click here to make a donation.
Portland Baroque Orchestra’s Board of Directors has approved a temporary mission change. For the duration of public gathering restrictions, PBO will anchor a city-wide livestreaming operation, offering single-camera livestreaming and outreach support to other Portland-area arts organizations. For information about livestreaming, click HERE.
March 18, 2020 | In this constantly evolving situation, PBO is working towards a plan for future concerts and performances. This will be updated as we know more.
March 13, 2020 | Our benefit concert, The Four Seasons in Celebration of Monica Huggett, will not be taking place on March 21. Nel Centro, the sponsor of our ticketed after party, has also made the decision to cancel group events. This is an incredibly difficult announcement to make, but ultimately, the health and safety of our community is paramount.
We hope to reschedule this event, and we also want to be confident that our selected date enables all of us to safely and happily be in the same room, celebrating Monica Huggett’s tenure as Artistic Director. Because of the ever-changing landscape, we need more information before we pick a date.
Once we have a new date scheduled, all ticket holders will have their ticket and seating honored.
March 12, 2020 | In accordance with Governor Kate Brown’s decision to ban all gatherings of over 250 people, Portland Baroque Orchestra has made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel the following upcoming performances:
• Theatrical Concerti | March 13, 14, 15
As of today we are also postponing our March 21 benefit concert, The Four Seasons in Celebration of Monica Huggett. We will update this page as we have more information.
If you currently have tickets to one of the above performances you will be contacted directly.
As we navigate this new and challenging situation, we have all learned about how different individuals and institutions have different levels of systemic risk. As a performing arts organization that presents events with various fixed and nonrefundable costs, Portland Baroque Orchestra is particularly vulnerable to the disruption of cancelled events. We ask kindly that you donate your tickets back to PBO and you will be issued a receipt for your tax-deductible gift. This loss of revenue has significant financial impact on our orchestra. You may also exchange your ticket for our May 2020 concert or request a refund.
If you would like to contact us directly regarding your tickets for upcoming performances, please email the appropriate email below, or give us a call at 503-222-6000.
Portland Baroque Orchestra is committed to the health, safety, and well-being of all those who attend our performances. We are closely monitoring the evolving local and global COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation, and are receiving updates from World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control, Multnomah County, and Oregon Health Authority.
