Though air quality has improved in the last week, it has not improved enough for tonight’s Soiree on the Edge concert to be held at Arbor Crest Wine Cellars, and the concert has once again been moved to the Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox.

“We are moving tonight’s concert indoors to the Fox Theater in order to protect both our patrons and musicians from the potential harmful effects of smoke,” Spokane Symphony Executive Director Jeff vom Saal said in a press release. “Last week’s Soirée on the Edge concert was moved indoors to Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox for the same reason. We featured Arbor Crest wines and it was a wonderful evening of music in our beautiful hall.”

Morihiko Nakahara will conduct the concert, which features Timo Andres’ “Word of Mouth,” Gabriel Kahane’s “Freight and Salvage,” Sarah Kirkland Snider’s “Daughter of the Waves” and Georges Bizet’s Symphony in C.

Doors open at 6 p.m., and the concert begins at 7 p.m. A variety of Arbor Crest Wine Cellars wines will be sold at the theater, along with snacks at the concession stand.

A reserved section of the orchestra section will be set aside for “tent table” ticketholders, and open seating will be available for those with “lawn tickets.”

Patrons unable to attend the indoor concert can apply the cost of their ticket toward another Classics or Baroque Chamber Concert this season. To do so, contact the box office at (509) 624-1200.
