SPOKANE—AUGUST 22, 2018…The Spokane Symphony announced that the outdoor Soirée on the Edge concert at Arbor Crest Wine Cellars, scheduled for tonight, August 22 at 7:00 p.m., will be moved inside Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox due to unhealthy air quality.
“We are moving tonight’s concert indoors to The Fox Theater in order to protect both our patrons and musicians from the potential harmful effects of smoke. Last week’s Soirée on the Edge concert was moved indoors to Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox for the same reason. We featured Arbor Crest wines and it was a wonderful evening of music in our beautiful hall,” said Spokane Symphony Executive Director Jeff vom Saal.
Doors open at 6:00 p.m. Wednesday at Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox, 1001 W. Sprague Avenue, and the concert begins at 7:00 p.m. with Resident Conductor Morihiko Nakahara. DETAILS Note: The Symphony’s website will be updated this morning to reflect tonight’s move into The Fox.
A variety of Arbor Crest Wine Cellars wines will be sold at the theater tonight, along with snacks at the concession stand, including pretzels, chips, cookies and candy. Concertgoers are encouraged to dine before the concert. Outside food is not permitted in Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox.
A reserved section of The Fox orchestra section will be available for “tent table” ticketholders, and open seating will be available for those holding “lawn tickets.”
Ticketholders for this Soirée on the Edge who are unable to attend the indoor concert on Wednesday, may apply the cost of their ticket toward another Classics or Baroque Chamber Concert this season. For more information, please contact the Box Office at (509) 624-1200.
