In accordance with the state of emergency conditions announced last night prohibiting events with more than 500 people for seven days, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra has canceled all performances at the Meyerson through Sunday, March 22.
According to Dallas Symphony Association Board of Governors Chair Sanjiv Yajnik, “As COVID-19 becomes an intensifying health concern, every decision we make is guided by our strong desire to keep our patrons and our talented musicians safe. I am thankful for our City of Dallas leaders, who have made bold and difficult choices to keep our community safe. While we are saddened by the situation as a whole, the DSO is deeply committed to taking proactive and preemptive actions that will help minimize the spread of the virus and alleviate health risks.”
During this time period the Meyerson will be closed and “it is unclear when the building will reopen and return to its normal operations.”
Dallas Symphony Orchestra Ross Perot President/CEO Kim Noltemy explained, “The health and safety of our audience, musicians and staff is of upmost importance, so we will postpone performances while there are concerns about the spread of coronavirus.”
