Out of respect for the health and safety of our campus and community of arts lovers, as of today the Mondavi Center is canceling all remaining public events for  the 2019–20 season.  We so much appreciate your support and interest in the Center’s programs, and wish there were another path available to us, but your safety and health, and that of our visiting artists, must come first.

This challenging decision aligns with guidance from the State of California, the University, and actions taken by the UC Davis Music Department, the Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum and UC Davis Athletics. (You can find current information on the campus situation at the UC Davis Coronavirus information page.)

We are in the process of contacting ticket holders for the affected performances, however our Ticket Office is currently closed due to the suspension of activity on the UC Davis campus. We are working remotely and are doing our best to contact all affected patrons. We appreciate your patience as we work through this unprecedented situation. Note that if patrons have unsubscribed from our email communications, we are not able to contact them via email. Be assured that refunds WILL happen, but not until our employees are able to safely return to campus.

In the meantime, we are continuing to build an extraordinary 2020-21 season, which we believe will be one of our best, and are eager to share it with our community. That season announcement will take place later than is our norm; our hope is to be able to announce the season in the month of May. I know you share our belief in the healing power of the arts in times of crisis and concern.

We look forward to a time when we can safely to congregate and celebrate the power of the arts together again in the beautiful spaces of the Mondavi Center. For the time being, please check our social channels, where we are linking to some of the great work being done across the world to broadcast the best of the arts into our homes during this time of great need.
