A STATEMENT FROM THE READING SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA:

As the board and staff of the Reading Symphony Orchestra continue to monitor COVID 19/coronavirus developments in our area, the RSO has decided to cancel both the April 18th performance of Broadway Rocks and the May 2nd performance of Verdi’s Requiem.

“Our top priority is the safety, health and wellbeing of our patrons, sponsors, musicians, employees, and volunteers. After careful consideration, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel our final two concerts of the 2019-2020 season,” said David Gross, executive director of the Orchestra.

“The current ‘stay at home’ order extended by Governor Wolf to April 30th directly resulted in canceling Broadway Rocks.  What is unclear is when people will be comfortable attending events involving large crowds,” said Michael Duff, president of the RSO Board.  “Consequently, our board unanimously felt that canceling the May 2nd concert as well was in the best interest of the RSO and our community.”

If you are holding tickets for a Reading Symphony Orchestra concert or any other local arts event that has been canceled due to current hardships caused by the health emergency, we politely ask you to consider taking a ticket credit or donating the cost of your purchase back to the organization in question. All of us in Berks County have entered into a period that no arts organization could ever possibly plan for – canceled performances and empty houses. Your small gesture of kindness could have a profound effect on the future of that organization, including the Reading Symphony Orchestra. We gratefully thank you for your consideration.

Ticketholders should call the RSO at 610-373-7557 to discuss their options.
