Due to growing COVID concerns and in the interest of safety for their patrons and musicians, The Firelands Symphony Orchestra (FSO) has made the difficult decision to cancel its “Portraits of American Heroism” featuring Tuskegee Airman Harold Brown of Port Clinton on Sunday, Jan. 16.
For fans of the patriotic pops concerts, the FSO is currently planning a special Independence Day pops concert with two shows on July 2 (at Marblehead Lighthouse) and July 4 (at Jackson Street Pier).
“It was not an easy decision, but after reviewing the growing number of COVID-19 cases and speaking with our local health officials, the Board of Directors elected to cancel the event and keep our patrons, musicians, staff, and volunteers safe during this turbulent time,” said Executive Director Tricia Applegate.
At this time, the FSO plans to present their remaining season concerts: Hope for a New World (Feb. 19 at 7:30 p.m.), Melodic Languages of Love (March 26 at 7:30 p.m.), and Venture Into Nature (April 24 at 4:00 p.m.). Tickets for these concerts are available at firelandssymphony.com/tickets or by calling the FSO office at 419-621-4800.
