2021-22 Questions & Answers
This page will be updated as information becomes available.
Will you be holding your traditional late summer Sunset at the Abbey concert this year?
Yes and it’s going to be a great one! The date of the concert is Sunday, September 12, 2021 @ 4:30 pm with a rain date of Sunday, September 19. Find more information about Sunset at the Abbey 2021 and purchase tickets, here.SEPTEMBER UPDATE: Thank you for the wonderful turnout for this concert!
What about the rest of the 2021/22 season? Shouldn’t you have announced it already?
We normally should have and are as ready as you to see the new ASO performance season announced; we have exciting programs under development. Unfortunately, our main venue hosts have not yet been able to confirm availability. SEPTEMBER UPDATE: We have now received initial confirmation and expect to release the remaining season schedule in late September or early October! The silver lining in these delays is that we’re less likely to run into the need to cancel scheduled/ticketed performances by having announced too early. We will announce news about the season as soon as we’re able, however.
I understand. Can you give me an idea about what you are planning?
If everything goes according to current plans, we will hold 5 to 6 in-person concerts this season and a series of 3 virtual Classical Wednesday concerts, based on the well received series from last season. The season schedule would be approximately as follows (subject to change):
• Sunset at the Abbey Summer Concert: 9/12
• Take a Bow! Party & Dinner Concert: late Oct./early Nov.
• Joyful Noise! Holiday Concert: early Dec.
• Classical Wednesdays virtual concerts: late Jan.–early Feb.
• Winter Chamber Concert: late Feb.
• Command Performance: late Mar.
• Spring Pops!: late Apr.
If you do hold in-person performances, will I be required to wear a mask?
We continue to monitor guidelines set by the CDC, along with any state mandates. At this time, it is reasonable to expect the need to wear a mask at indoor concerts, regardless of your vaccination status. You can read the guidelines and precautions for Sunset at the Abbey 2021, here.
Will you be offering subscriptions this season?
We plan to! Unless the final season doesn’t support this, we plan to offer at least one type of season subscription.
I have other questions. Whom do I call?
