Concert Cancellation

Friday (3/13) and Saturday’s (3/14) Concerts Canceled Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) Concerns

The Louisville Orchestra has been closely monitoring the reports and recommendations about the COVID-19 (coronavirus) especially regarding the impact of public gatherings.

In response to the growing body of information, the Louisville Orchestra board of directors has decided to cancel performances scheduled for this weekend – Friday, March 13 at 11AM and Saturday, March 14 at 8PM at the Kentucky Center. “Out of an abundance of caution and a concern for everyone involved in these performances, we believe cancelling these concerts is the best course of action for our community and stakeholders at this time,” says John P. Malloy, president of the LO board.

Decisions regarding upcoming concerts will be evaluated based on the ongoing community conditions and any further cancellations or postponements will be announced in upcoming weeks.

This decision will have a significant negative financial impact on the LO. We are especially appreciative of our generous patrons who will consider donating tickets purchased for these concerts. These gifts and the support of the community will allow the LO to navigate this challenge and continue to thrive and serve Louisville in the future.
