In these difficult and turbulent times, SMA hopes for justice and peace for our beloved Twin Cities, our State and our Nation as a whole.

Like so many in the live music industry, we have been forced to make a very difficult decision about our long-running summer concert series.  It is with heavy hearts that SMA is cancelling the 2020 Music in the Zoo summer concert season. This is a first in the 27-year series history. The safety and health of all involved is our first priority, along with not compromising the unique and magical live music experience at the Minnesota Zoo that artists and fans alike have come to love and expect.  The health crisis of COVID-19 has unfortunately rendered this impossible at this time.  SMA looks forward to the day we can safely bring live music back to fans!

 We especially want to thank our amazing Zoo Crew for their tireless dedication to ensure the concerts play out under the stars every summer.  We also thank the amazing artists that grace the Sue McLean stage every year, including their touring crews, our terrific and long-standing sponsor partners, the Minnesota Zoo team that works alongside us all summer and especially YOU; the fans that so passionately support live music!
