The Kamloops Symphony has postponed its two spring events, with dates to be announced.
Luminous Voices was set to be held on April 11 in Kamloops. Now, that event will be rescheduled in the fall or cancelled, with a final decision to be made by Sept. 4.
A Sense of Wonder was to be presented on May 2 in Kamloops and on May 3 in Salmon Arm. Now, that event will be postponed to late summer or cancelled, with a decision being made by June 30.
“Out of respect to all the musicians involved in both programs, the Kamloops Symphony is making a commitment to reschedule both concerts either in their entirety or in part for a later date, if a suitable venue and conditions can be met,” the KSO notice reads.
The symphony says it cannot yet commit to specific dates and is monitoring as the pandemic and its fallout continues to develop.
“Our first choice is to reprogram these concerts,” the notice reads.
Those who already have tickets to either event have a few options: they can retain their tickets and wait for the news, donate the value of the tickets back to the Kamloops Symphony for a tax receipt, or apply the value of the tickets toward a 2020-2021 Kamloops Symphony event or subscription. If none of those options are possible, a full refund can be issued.
The KSO is asking for ticket inquiries to be dealt with by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, although patrons can also leave a voicemail message at the Kamloops Live box office at 250-374-5483.
“We wish to thank all advocates of the Symphony and the Arts in Kamloops for your continued support during these extraordinary circumstances. Now more than ever, we rely on the kindness of music enthusiasts like yourself, and invite you to consider renewing your support today. With your help, we will get through this,” the notice concludes.
