In order to protect patrons, musicians, and staff, and in consideration of social distancing guidelines, the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra has made the difficult decision to cancel the remaining performances in Bass Performance Hall for the 2019-2020 season, the symphony said in an announcement.
These concerts will be programmed into future seasons to ensure our audiences experience these extraordinary performances.
“The Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra continues to work with city officials in following the guidelines for safe social distancing,” said Keith Cerny, Ph.D., FWSO President and CEO. “The safety and well-being of our patrons, musicians and staff remains a top priority, which is why we decided to cancel the remainder of our Bass Hall performances this season.”
Until presentations can began again, he said, “we invite everyone to keep enjoying beautiful music and activities found in our virtual Music Lab.”
The following performances are included in the cancellations:
– Enigma Variations and Brahms 2: May 21, 2020 – Bass Performance Hall
– Kenny G: May 22-24, 2020 – Bass Performance Hall
Patrons with tickets to cancelled performances have the option to exchange their tickets for other performances or donate them back as a tax-deductible donation.
Ticket holders will receive an email with instructions on how to request a ticket return and may also request their ticket return at www.fwsymphony.org or by calling the Box Office at 817-665-6500.
