The Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) announced that this month’s scheduled tour to Florida has been postponed due to the recent surge in COVID-19 cases across the country. The tour will be rescheduled for a future season.

« Protecting the health and safety of our patrons, musicians, staff, and stage crew has been our top priority since the start of the pandemic,” said DSO President and CEO Erik Rönmark. “While we are disappointed that we will not be able to perform this month for community partners and audiences in West Palm Beach, Miami, Gainesville, and Sarasota, we know that this is the responsible decision for the orchestra at this time.”

Next week’s concert in Detroit will take place as scheduled on Wednesday, January 12 at 7:30 p.m. at Orchestra Hall with Music Director Jader Bignamini conducting Rossini’s William Tell Overture, Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition (orchestrated by Ravel), and Dvořák’s Concerto for Cello and Orchestra in B minor with guest soloist Joshua Roman. The stand-alone program, which was to have been the tour’s send-off concert, will be streamed for free on and Facebook as part of the DSO’s Live from Orchestra Hall series.
