To Our Van Wezel Foundation Family,

The health and safety of our community, patrons, staff, and visiting artists is our top priority and we understand we must all do our part to contain the spread of COVID-19.

Please visit the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall website for the most up-to-date information on postponements and/or cancellations. The Van Wezel Box Office will be reaching out to patrons directly impacted by any changes.

If you are a member of our Friends Society and have tickets to performances that have been impacted, please open our Ticket Action Form to let us know how to process your refund, exchange or donation back to the Foundation. We continue to accepts gifts and donations online and via the mail to support our mission.

We thank you for your support during this time of uncertainty and appreciate your generosity.
