Soka Performing Arts Center is closely monitoring the rapidly evolving events surrounding the recent outbreak of a novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and considers the health and well-being of our patrons, artists and employees with the highest priority. 

 We want to reassure our patrons that no cases have been reported on the campus of Soka University. The University has taken additional precautions to mitigate risk and exposure on campus. See link for details.

In light of the recent directive from the Governor of the State of California, and the escalating issues related to COVID-19, we will be postponing all shows for the rest of the season. This decision was not entered into lightly. The safety of our community and those most vulnerable among us is our main concern.

These events include: Rocky Dawuni (April 11), Hub New Music (April 26), and Beatrice Rana (May 16). The rescheduled dates are not yet confirmed.

Arlo Guthrie has been rescheduled for Sunday, September 20, 2020 at 3pm
Pacific Symphony Performs Ticheli and Beethoven has been rescheduled for Sunday, September 25, 2020 at 3pm

Yefim Bronfman has been rescheduled for Sunday, December 6, 2020 at 3pm

All tickets for postponed shows will automatically be valid for the rescheduled date. No action is required. Tickets may also be refunded for or returned for an account credit in the amount of the original purchase price.

Soka’s Box Office is closed to walk-up service. Due to current circumstances, the call volume and length of wait time has increased dramatically. The preferred method of communication is through email at

Thank for your patience and understanding of our efforts to keep everyone safe at this time. Stay well, and we look forward to a wonderful season in 20-21.

Warm regards,

Renee Bodie
General Manager
