Atlanta Symphony Cancels Concert Scheduled for 1/30 Due to Icy Travel Conditions
Due to icy and hazardous road conditions in Atlanta, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra has decided to cancel the concert on Thursday, January 30, 2014, at 8:00 p.m., led by conductor Roberto Abbado and featuring violinist Nadia Salerno-Sonnenberg. The concerts on Friday and Saturday are currently expected to take place as scheduled.
"We are deeply saddened to cancel this performance," said Atlanta Symphony Orchestra President & CEO Stanley E. Romanstein, Ph.D. "The icy conditions in metro-Atlanta are unfortunate, but the well-being of our concertgoers, musicians, and staff is of the utmost importance to us - this is why we have decided to take the recommendation of Governor Deal to stay off the roads. We look forward to seeing Atlantans, during safer travel conditions, at Atlanta Symphony Hall later this weekend."
Beginning Friday, January 31, concertgoers may visit the Woodruff Arts Center Box Office located at 15th and Peachtree Streets, or call 404.733.5000 to either obtain refunds or exchange tickets for another concert this weekend. Subscribers should call the Season Tickets office at 404.733.4800.
