The Kishwaukee Symphony Orchestra Announces the Cancellation of the 2020 Portion of Its Live Concert Season
For 43 seasons, the Kishwaukee Symphony Orchestra has been proud and privileged to provide classical and popular music performances for our region.
The orchestra had planned a full 44th season, with four concerts in the fall part of the season (October – December 2020) and three concerts in the spring portion of the season (February – May 2021). However, the current coronavirus pandemic restrictions on public gatherings have caused the KSO Board of Directors to cancel the fall concerts. Discussion will continue in order to determine the orchestra’s future performances, considering the top priorities of health and safety for its musicians, staff, and patrons.
“We appreciate the ongoing support we have received from the community,” says Ann Tucker, KSO president. “When we are able to gather safely again, we will celebrate with amazing live music.”
Instead of providing live concerts for our appreciative audiences, the orchestra plans to provide access to recordings of KSO musical performances via the Internet through at least December. Please visit this website and stay in touch on our social media channels, including Facebook (www.facebook.com/kishorchestra) and Instagram, where we’ll provide updates and share ways to engage with art and culture from home.
