The Town of Milton has closed all of its buildings to the public as of 5:00pm today, March 13, 2020, in response to the Covid-19 threat. This closure means the cancelation of all events and concerts until further notice, including our concert Best of Broadway this Sunday.
Per the email sent out to ticket holders and patrons of the Arts Centre:
“All ticket holders who are impacted by this closure will be contacted by phone beginning Monday, March 16 to refund your ticket purchase.“
At this time we have no information regarding rescheduling of this concert or our remaining season, but we do support and appreciate the Town’s decision to close their public spaces to slow the spread of the virus and keep our community safe.
We will share updates as they become available, and in the meantime, we urge you to take all necessary precautions to safeguard the health of you and your loved ones.
On behalf of our musicians, we wish you the best of health and a speedy resolution to this crisis.

We are honoured to be the recipient of Chef Melani Bastian’s fundraiser on April 4th, at her brand new restaurant, Caribbean Vibes!
We will start the evening viewing and bidding on silent auction items donated from our generous community, then sit down for a delicious Caribbean meal prepared by Chef Bastians, while enjoying music performed live by Milton Philharmonic Orchestra musicians and our Maestro himself! After, we’ve heard rumours of karaoke and possibly even dancing with a fantastic DJ. Door prizes and more! Space is limited so get your tickets soon!
A quick recap of our busy season to date: In October we performed the Festival of Music, which included a number of talented singers from our community. In November, we had the Georgetown Pipeband partner with us, and celebrated St. Andrew’s Day with spectacular Scottish music. This month saw our 6th annual Winterlude concert, featuring soprano Alexa Frankian. We were also proud to perform with our good friends the Milton Choristers in their biannual Messiah concert. Friends… we are tired! We plan to kick back and enjoy our varied festivities over the next couple of weeks, and get back to it in January, refreshed and ready to go!
Mark your calendars for our remaining shows! On March 15, 2020 we will have a toe-tapping concert that any theater-lover will enjoy, with The Best of Broadway. This show is going to help break the inevitable winter monotony we all face with some much-loved show tunes that will have you dancing in the aisle and singing along. Tickets are on sale now (and make great gifts, if you’re not done! Purchase and print them out now!) get them here.
Our grand finale for season 6 is none other than Verdi’s Requiem on May 2nd! This amazing work by Giuseppe Verdi is one of the most powerful and difficult pieces we have played to date, and a DO NOT MISS concert. Join us for this masterful concert – tickets are available here.
We have so much to be grateful for, and this time of year really brings it home how fortunate we are to be in our 6th season, performing in a state of the art theater, working with their stellar crew, and performing for you, our audience. Your enthusiasm and support is appreciated throughout the year, and without you, we couldn’t continue to bring music to our community. So thank you, one and all, for being a part of our family.
With much appreciation, we wish you and yours a very joyous holiday season.
