The New York Philharmonic has cancelled all concerts through June 13, 2021 and announced that it will resume concerts in September 2021 only. To patrons having already bought tickets, they say: « We are facing a significant loss of revenue. Rather than request a refund, please donate the value of your tickets to help us serve our community and share our music. You will receive a tax-deductible receipt for your donation. »

In the 178-year history of the orchestra, the cancellation of an entire season marks a historic first, with consequent financial challenges. President and CEO Deborah Borda said: « We are in the process of developing an expanded orchestral live streaming series to be launched in the winter (if the authorities allow it) and hope to announce details of this in just a bit. Of course, our free NY Phil Plays On portal continues to be active. In the near future, we will update you on the previously announced plan for the renovation of David Geffen Hall. Most importantly for our future, the NY Phil 2021–22 season will be announced in spring of 2021. »
