Concerts Canceled through April 25

Music Director Teddy Abrams issued this comment:

The music world is going to be hit hard by the response to the coronavirus (as will the entire entertainment industry) but immediate sacrifices are necessary if we want to preserve the possibility of a global recovery.

This doesn’t mean that art and culture won’t have a role in this struggle; we are needed more than ever to maintain our humanity and meaningful connectivity. My fellow Louisville Orchestra members and I will be thinking of ways to use our music as a vessel to connect and heal during these times; and we thank our audiences for the love and devotion that you share with us on our journey each season.

Please take care of each other, please support the people in our world making difficult decisions, and let us hope, as we share in these challenges and tragedies, that we emerge as a far more compassionate and empathetic planet when the darkness lifts.

The Louisville Orchestra is joining with others in local arts community to do what we can to keep people safe and healthy. Concerts scheduled through Saturday, April 25, 2020 have been canceled.

We are grateful to those patrons who have or plan to donate the value of their tickets to canceled 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.
