70th Season Butte Symphony Association


To our Butte Symphony Community:
This is an unprecedented time in our Butte/Silver Bow community. COVID-19 has taken a huge toll and cause the temporary cessation of live performances. We are all facing a tremendous amount of uncertainty as we await an effective vaccine to help our area return to normal. Our top priority is the health and safety of our musicians and audience, and to also be a leader in our community by reacting in the most sensible way possible.
Currently, all live performances are on hold until a vaccine is made available to the public at large. The best guess for a reasonable timetable would be early summer of 2021. We are encouraged by this and are planning a full season for 2021/2022 ... our 72nd year! Our musicians are ready and wanting to bring great music to our public. We will keep you posted as things progress and will announce any developments as they happen.
Please consider helping us "bridge the gap" by donating to the Butte Symphony so we can hit the ground running and return to our performances at the Mother Lode Theater. Just go to the "donate" tab on this website. Many thanks for all of the support we have and will receive. Together, we will survive this crisis and come back stronger than ever!
