The Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox will be dark through April 10 in response to the widening coronavirus outbreak.
The Fox and Spokane Symphony officials hope to reschedule as many of the performances as possible. So far, the only event canceled outright is the 75th season launch celebration planned for March 23.
The events currently pending new dates are:
Allman Betts Band (March 18); Star Wars in Concert (March 21-22); Ronnie Milsap (March 24); Masterworks 8: Russian Passions (March 28-29); Glenn Miller Orchestra (March 30); Chamber Soirée on the Stage: Spring (March 31-April 1); Chamber Soirée at Rockwood: Spring (April 2); and Julia Sweeney: Taping of “Older & Wider” (April 2-3).
The Walt Wagner Trio, originally scheduled to perform April 4, has been rescheduled to June 5.
“The health of the Spokane community is our greatest concern at this time of tremendous uncertainty with the coronavirus. We take seriously the threat that large gatherings present, and want to do our part to participate in the community-wide effort to contain the spread of the virus,” said Spokane Symphony executive director Jeff vom Saal in a news release.
Information about ticket exchange, refund and donation options will be published on the Spokane Symphony and the Fox websites: www.spokanesymphony.org and www.foxtheaterspokane.org.
