2020–21 Season | Live from Jones Hall
- Will there be opportunities to attend concerts in person this season?
At this time, we are hosting small audiences inside Jones Hall. The total in-person attendance will be less than 25% capacity. All current 2020–21 Season subscribers will be able to attend the concerts to which they hold tickets. We will announce audience capacity changes as they arise.
- What safety measures are in place for in-person attendees?
All upcoming performances that include in-person audiences will have greatly reduced attendance, along with social distancing of at least 6 feet between each household. Our safety plan has been created over several months in close collaboration with medical experts at Houston Methodist, and additional measures include mandatory mask wearing, increased cleaning before performances, staggered and guided patron entrance and exit, a no-touch or low-touch experience, and temperature check at arrival. Please be advised that temperature checks are currently in place at all entries of Jones Hall. If you consistently register a high fever you will be asked to leave, and you will be offered a refund.
- How are you ensuring musicians’ safety?
We will be limiting the number of musicians onstage to accommodate social distancing between each musician. Additionally, all musicians are being tested regularly to ensure their continued safety.
- Will 2020–21 Season programming be the same as what you originally announced?
Due to travel restrictions on artists and conductors, and the distancing necessary to ensure our musicians’ safety, there will be changes to originally announced 2020–21 Season programming. Our conductors and artistic staff are hard at work planning a reimagined season that retains the spirit of each originally announced program, while offering the chance to explore some fantastic repertoire that you’ll only get to hear this season. Updated programming will be announced on an ongoing basis. We will make every effort to reschedule guest artists, pieces, and programs that cannot be presented this year to a future season.
- Will you livestream performances all season?
Yes, we plan to livestream one performance per concert weekend for the entirety of the 2020–21 Season (September, 2020–May, 2021) for all Classical, POPS, and Family Series performances.
- Can I buy several livestream performances at once to receive a price break?
Yes. Full-season Classical, POPS, and Family Series packages are available, or choose 4+ or 6+ dates that you’d like to watch as part of a Livestream Pick Your Own package. Livestream Series subscribers receive 25% off single ticket prices. View livestream packages
- How do I access the livestreams? Do I have to watch live?

- Can I talk to someone about ticketing options?
We are here to help answer any questions you may have. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 713.224.7575 between noon and 6 p.m. Monday–Saturday.
- How can I support the Houston Symphony throughout this time?
