Originating Calendar
Krannert Center

The Siberian State Symphony Orchestra has announced with regret the cancellation of its winter 2020 American tour, including its Krannert Center visit. The orchestra is unable to secure work authorization at this time. On November 4, 2019, the orchestra filed its I-129 P-1 Petition to the US Department of Homeland Security and US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Despite strong support from legislative offices and professional musical organizations, USCIS had not approved the orchestra’s petition as of February 4, 2020. As a result, the orchestra is unable to travel to the United States for this performance tour.

 

Patrons who purchased tickets with a credit card will receive a refund on the card used. Those who paid with Krannert CenterChecks or a gift card will receive a gift card refund by mail. Patrons who paid with cash or check will receive a university refund check by mail within six to eight weeks. All are welcome to contact the Ticket Office at 217.333.6280 or 800.KCPATIX with questions.
