Tonight’s Soiree on the Edge performance by the Spokane Symphony has been moved from Arbor Crest Wine Cellars to the Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox because of poor air quality.

“We’ve made the decision to move tonight’s concert indoors to the Fox Theater in order to protect both our patrons and musicians from the potential harmful effects of smoke which continues to permeate the air in the greater Spokane region,” said symphony executive director Jeff vom Saal in a news release. “We hope conditions improve substantially for next week’s Soiree on the Edge concert at Arbor Crest Wine Cellars on Aug. 22, and for our upcoming Labor Day weekend parks concerts.”

Doors open at 6 tonight at the Fox, 1001 W. Sprague Ave., and the concert will begin at 7 p.m.

Those patrons who purchased “tent table” seating for Arbor Crest will be directed to a dedicated section in the Fox auditorium. Those with “lawn seating” tickets will be able to take advantage of open seating elsewhere in the auditorium.

While there will be Arbor Crest wines available for purchase at the Fox, one aspect of the soiree cannot be replicated in the indoor space: the ability to bring your own picnic basket. Snacks will be sold at the concession stand, but outside food is not allowed at the Fox. Event organizers urge patrons to eat before they attend the show.

Another change? The event is not longer restricted to those ages 21 and older.

Those patrons unable to attend the concert at the Fox can apply their ticket cost toward a Classics concert this season. Call the Fox box office at (509) 624-1200 for more information or to purchase tickets.
