CANCELLED: An Evening with Renée Elise Goldsberry

The Sheldon Gala 2020

Saturday, March 28, 2020 @ 8:30 PM

Out of an abundance of caution, and with great consideration for our community, The Sheldon has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Gala featuring Renée Elise Goldsberry on March 28. The decision was made in cooperation with local efforts to contain and restrict the spread of COVID-19. While this was a challenging decision to make, The Sheldon’s top priority is to protect the well-being and safety of our patrons, artists and staff.

The Sheldon Gala is The Sheldon’s biggest fundraiser of the year, and all proceeds support the music, art and education programs that The Sheldon provides to the community. Ticket buyers are eligible to request a refund at the original point of purchase, but are also asked to consider donating the cost of their tickets to The Sheldon instead.

Gala patron ticket buyers and donors can contact The Sheldon directly at SDO@TheSheldon.org or 314-533-9900 to discuss their options.

Concert-only ticket buyers will be contacted via e-mail or phone with instructions on how to make their preference known.


The winner of the Tony, Grammy and Drama Desk Awards for her performance in the Broadway phenomenon Hamilton, Renée Elise Goldsberry has won critical and popular acclaim for her work on stage and screen. Goldsberry will headline the 2020 Sheldon Gala, performing Broadway favorites and soulful renditions of timeless classics. This very special evening is co-chaired by Tim and Julie Noonan, and Sue and Irl Engelhardt. Proceeds benefit the concerts, gallery exhibitions and educational programs of the Sheldon Concert Hall and Art Galleries.

Since winning the Tony Award, Goldsberry has appeared in Baz Luhrmann’s The Get Down for Netflix and shot the title role for HBO’s The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks opposite Oprah Winfrey. She is currently starring in the Netflix series Altered Carbon. Prior to Hamilton, Goldberry’s appearances on stage include her Outer Critics Circle Award nominated performance opposite Frances McDormand in the play Good People, as well as the original stage version of The Color Purple, and appearances in The Lion King and Rent.
