COVID-19 Update and Concert Cancellations


The Toledo Symphony continues to closely monitor the situation concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

On April 2, 2020, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine extended the statewide stay-at-home order to May 1, 2020. In compliance with the order, and in an effort to protect our audiences, musicians, staff, volunteers, and the community from the spread of the coronavirus, all remaining performances and events through June 6, 2020 are cancelled.

Our leadership team has worked tirelessly to determine the best course of action in response to the quickly evolving news. Due to rehearsal and production needs, however, we do not see how we can safely bring our musicians, staff, or audiences together before the end of our 2019-2020 season.

  • Love Songs (March 13 & 14, 2020)
  • Toledo Public School's 4th Grade Concert (March 20, 2020)

Current Programming


In these extraordinary times, we’re all seeking inspiration and hope. We believe that music and the performing arts can continue to bring people together, even if we cannot share the same physical space.

We invite you to tune into channel 30 or your local WGTE television station on Sundays at 6 PM to watch never-before-seen archival concert footage on WGTE Presents: TSO in HD. Grab your TV trays and spend your Sunday dinner hour watching some of our greatest performances, hand-picked by Music Director Alain Trudel.

Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for the latest news and videos from Toledo Symphony musicians. Many of our musicians have posted intimate, at-home performances of music that they love. We invite you to watch along and get to know our incredible musicians better. They are making something very personal and sharing it with you to keep the music alive.

New episodes of our award-winning Toledo SymphonyLab podcast continue to air on Wednesdays at 3:30 PM on FM91, and all previously aired and extended episodes can be found online or your favorite podcast app.

A collection of educational activities for students of all ages has been specially curated, and Music Director Alain Trudel invites you to dust off your instrument and Play With Alain! Designed for instrumentalists at different ability levels, you can perform alongside one of the world’s greatest trombonists right at home.

These virtual performances, activities, and archival broadcasts will have to sustain us for a while until we can be together in-person again—and we look forward to the day when we can share in live art with you in the same space. Until then, thank you for your continued support. You inspire us to continue creating new and innovative ways to connect. Take care, be safe, and see you soon.
