SPOKANE—March 19, 2020…The Spokane Symphony has made the difficult decision to cancel the remainder of the 2019-20 Spokane Symphony season—three masterworks concerts, one pops concert, two chamber soirées, “The M Show” and the Link Up education concert--due to the global pandemic of the coronavirus/COVID-19, and the inability to have large gatherings like concerts at this time. In addition, some other events at Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox are also cancelled.
“It breaks our hearts to end a wonderful season of live, orchestral music, but of course it’s the right thing to do for the health and safety of our community. We know that better times are ahead, and live concerts and events at Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox will return. We believe in the healing power of music and the joy of live entertainment. Please take good care of yourself, and we’ll look forward to seeing you at the Fox Theater later this year,” said Jeff vom Saal, Executive Director, Spokane Symphony.
