ANN ARBOR – The University Musical Society has announced that all in-person events have been canceled through April due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Ticketholders can choose to receive a full refund, a UMS gift certificate that’s good for the next five years or donate the purchase price of their ticket to UMS.

Here is a statement from its website:

COVID-19 continues to affect all of our communities, and it’s clear that we are not going to be able to resume any time soon. With this latest update, we are disappointed to inform you that UMS will not hold any live performances through April 2021.

As you can imagine, many artists, particularly larger ensembles, have canceled their tour plans for this winter and spring due to both travel restrictions and concerns about the spread of coronavirus. While we are saddened by this news, we believe that the health and safety — of both our artists and our audiences — is the top priority right now.
