Cancellation Notice

Dear Friends of The Meridian Symphony Association,


It is our highest priority to protect the health and well-being of all our patrons, artists, volunteers, and staff.  In adherence to the current stay-at-home order issued by Governor Tate Reeves and the specific health recommendations issued by the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control, and the MS Department of Health, we are cancelling our upcoming Beethoven & Blue Jeans concert scheduled for May 9.  


As you know, we have already cancelled our beloved Symphony Doo-Dah concert in early April. Because we do not know what the immediate future holds, and the difficulty of scheduling around the unknown, these concerts will not be rescheduled.  However, we do plan to work with our local and regional schools to provide our Music Education Program in various ways when the fall session resumes.  


These cancellations will have a significant financial impact on the Orchestra.  We are especially appreciative of our generous supporters who consider donating their tickets for a tax credit.  The Meridian Symphony has been a strong foundation in our community for fifty-nine years because of the unwavering support of its patrons.  Now, as always, we are grateful for your partnership.

Ticket Flexibility

We are committed to providing the utmost flexibility for our patrons in light of these unprecedented circumstances.  We kindly ask for patience as we navigate each case day by day.  Currently, the MSA office remains closed; however, the staff continues to work from home.  Your calls and emails will be answered as quickly as possible should you have any questions.

  • Donate your tickets and receive a charitable donation receipt for our total ticket value.  By doing so, you will continue to support our ability to share music with the greater Meridian community.  

  • Exchange your tickets for a Meridian Symphony voucher that will be redeemable for any Classical concert(s) during the 2020-21 season.  

You will be contacted through our upcoming newsletter regarding ways to obtain your choice of tax receipt or ticket voucher.  If you are receiving this message via social media or through a friend, and feel we may not have your current email or postal address, please reach out to our office staff at:  We miss you all terribly and can't wait to return to the concert hall together.  Until then, we would like to stay in touch.  Many new and exciting announcements will be made in the coming days and we don't want you to miss any of them!  Please make sure that we have your email address and you check our Facebook page often.
