Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The Juneau Symphony has rescheduled several performances over coronavirus concerns.
The symphony released the following statement on Friday:
"After careful consideration in consultation with our board leadership, local and state health authorities and officials we are rescheduling the April 4 and 5 concerts. Under the direction of Music Director Finalist, Dr. Stephen Radcliffe, we will perform Heroic Pictures June 27 and 28 at Juneau Douglas High School.
We place the health and wellbeing of our community first and appreciate your understanding the need to reschedule. It is our sincere hope that for the good of our organization, our loyal patrons can attend one of these new dates and if not, will be willing to consider their tickets as donations back to the organization to help minimize our loses in this time of uncertainty.
If you have questions or need more information please visit our website. We will be updating the site with new information as it is available.
We are all in this together and trust that our community's efforts to minimize the impact of COVID -19 will be effective and that the rescheduled date will be fine. We will, of course, respond to new developments if needed as they unfold.
Our June 6 and 7 Pops concert series, A Night at the Oscars, under the direction of Troy Quinn will continue as scheduled.
In addition to the rescheduling of our mainstage concert on April 4 and 5, we are postponing our March 28 special fundraising event, Beethoven and Brews at Twisted Fish. We hope to reschedule the event, so please stay tuned for a new date."
