CANCELLATION OF 2020-2021 SEASON
The Oneonta Concert Association deeply regrets that, due to the coronavirus emergency, we will be unable to safely produce our 2020-2021 concert season as planned. We remain committed to bringing live performances to Oneonta! The artists scheduled for this season have been flexible and gracious, and we are making plans to produce concerts with as many of them as possible next year. Accordingly, our 93rd season will now be 2021-2022. Subscriptions already purchased for the 93rd season will be automatically credited to the 2021-2022 season, unless a refund is requested.
Please watch this site for future announcements: If the situation has improved enough in Spring 2021, we may attempt to produce an extra concert then, but only if we can do it safely for our performers and our audience.
For details on subscriptions or refunds, please call Margery Merzig, Subscription Chair, at 432-6056.
Videos are not at all the same as live performances, but we encourage you to support the artists as much as possible under these trying circumstances. Many of them include videos of some of their past performances on their own websites at the links included here on our Season Schedule page. Some of them may be livestreaming concerts on the internet as well. Check their websites for their own updated information.
The Oneonta Concert Association (OCA), founded in 1928, is the area’s oldest cultural organization.
