On Wednesday, the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra announced the following:
“The BPO has made the difficult decision to cancel this weekend’s New World Symphony performances on Friday, Jan 14, at 10:30 a.m., and Saturday, Jan 15, at 7:30 p.m. Though the orchestra has always taken the strictest precautions for the safety and welfare of the musicians, staff, and crew involved in the production of its concerts, this decision was made due to growing concerns about the spread of the coronavirus in our community.
“New World Symphony ticketholders may exchange their tickets for a future ’21-22 season performance scheduled through June 2022. Ticketholders should call the BPO box office at 716-885-5000, or email [email protected] to discuss their options.
“All future performances and events at Kleinhans Music Hall remain as scheduled at this time. The BPO and Kleinhans Music Hall leadership teams are closely monitoring the ever-evolving pandemic situation. Should any changes to other upcoming programs become necessary, they will be addressed in a future announcement.”
