Indianapolis Symphony Cancels Summer Concerts Amidst COVID-19 Pandemic

INDIANAPOLIS) — The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra has canceled its summer slate of performances because of the lingering threat that the coronavirus pandemic poses to its musicians, staff and patrons.

Symphony officials had previously canceled all performances through May 27. They announced Monday the cancellation of the remaining scheduled summer concerts through Sept. 17, including the popular Symphony on the Prairie season that’s staged at suburban Indianapolis’ Conner Prairie.

CEO James Johnson said the additional cancellations are “disappointing” but the “safety of our musicians, staff, and patrons comes before all else.”
