All Vocal Arts Ensemble events canceled through April 5, 2020

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine issued an order earlier this afternoon prohibiting the gathering of groups of more than 100 people in the State of Ohio, in an effort to reduce the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Accordingly, the Vocal Arts Ensemble has announced that all Vocal Arts Ensemble performances and events are canceled through at least Sunday, April 5, 2020. Governor DeWine’s decision prioritizes public health by restricting all large gatherings, and we are committed to the health and well-being of our audience members, musicians, volunteers and staff. This cancellation will have a significant financial impact for the Vocal Arts Ensemble. We are especially appreciative of our generous supporters who will consider their donating tickets for these performances. Throughout our history, the Vocal Arts Ensemble has navigated challenges and continues to thrive because of the strength of our community. Now, as always, we are grateful for our community’s extraordinary support.

What are my ticket options?

Exchange your tickets for a future performance. As this was to be the last performance of the VAE 2019-20 season, we’re happy to exchange your tickets for one of the performances in the May Festival 2020 season. All exchange fees are waived now through May 31, 2020. Ticket holders can exchange tickets by calling the Box Office at 513.381.3300.

Donate your ticket. As a non-profit arts organization, we rely on the audience we serve. By donating your tickets, you will continue to support our ability to share music with the Cincinnati community. If you donate your tickets, you will receive a gift receipt for your tax purposes. If you wish to donate your tickets, you do not need to call. If you choose not to exchange your tickets, the Vocal Arts Ensemble sincerely thanks you for your donation. A tax donation receipt will be mailed automatically in June.

Other options: Questions or other ticket needs, email us at contact@mayfestival.com, through this form or call the Box Office at 513.381.3300 (M-F 10-5; Sat 10-2). Please be aware that call volume will be heavy. Ticket exchanges can be made until the end of May 2020. Thank you for your ongoing support of the Vocal Arts Ensemble.
