LUBBOCK, TX – The Lubbock Symphony Orchestra (LSO) announced the decision to cancel Night at the Movies on May 8 due to concerns about the COVID-19 virus and in accordance with CDC recommendations and the current city-wide restrictions on large gatherings.
“Out of concern for the safety of our patrons, musicians, staff and volunteers, and in response to the recommendations and guidelines of the local and national public health authorities, the LSO Board of Directors has decided to cancel our upcoming concert on May 8,” said Galen Wixson, LSO CEO & president. “We are deeply saddened to see an early end to our phenomenal 2019-2020 season. Our mission is to provide incredible musical experiences for our community, and to be unable to fulfill this promise to our neighbors is devastating. It’s especially difficult to suspend our concerts in this dark time when the world desperately needs the joy and light that music brings. Still, we believe this is the essential step to protect the most vulnerable within the LSO family and support our global community waging war with this unprecedented event.”
Ticket-holders have the option to receive a full refund or donate the value of the tickets to the LSO, which will assist with the LSO’s commitment to pay musicians for all canceled concerts in a critical time when area musicians are not able to perform.
