Next Steps

The Oxford Performing Arts Center (OPAC) of Oxford, Alabama will be further postponing previously rescheduled concerts and events in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

John Longshore, Executive Director, said the decision to delay performances was not easily made.

“It has been a tough year for everyone, and for arts and culture organizations across the nation and throughout the world,” Longshore said. “Not only are there health concerns for our patrons and staff, but virtually all artists have put their tours on hold.”

In March, OPAC began rescheduling spring performances in accordance with state guidelines. To protect ticket buyers and stop the spread of illness, several performances have been either canceled or postponed. While the timeline is unclear, the OPAC team is working hard to ensure the postponed performances will be presented in the future.

“While we are unable to host our typical season programming between now and the end of the year, it is our goal to welcome our audiences back for live performances as soon as possible – hopefully in early 2021,” Longshore said.

The Oxford Performing Arts Center is offering several options to patrons who have purchased tickets to the postponed performances. More information can be found online at
