For Your Safety (COVID-19 Coronavirus)

In light of the continued spread of COVID-19 around the country and now in Tarrant County, and in accordance with mandated government regulations, Performing Arts Fort Worth has made the difficult decision to cancel all events scheduled to be held at Bass Performance Hall, McDavid Studio and the Van Cliburn Recital Hall through May 17, 2020.

The health and safety of our patrons and community are our top priorities and we have not made this decision lightly. We understand that the cancellation of events that our community eagerly anticipates brings disappointments and frustrations. During this difficult time, we urge everyone to participate in keeping our community healthy by following the CDC’s guidelines for preventing the spread of COVID-19 and other illnesses.

Performing Arts Fort Worth, the non-profit organization that manages Bass Hall, will be monitoring developments closely and will provide additional updates regarding operations and events as needed.

Live performance brings people together in a uniquely joyful way. Although we are not able to experience this joy together at the moment, we cannot wait to welcome you back to Bass Hall in the future.
