Fort Worth Symphony to perform live, scaled-down fall 2020 season

Posted on: July 30, 2020

“The Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra announced it will be performing live as planned this fall, but with a modified schedule and reduced audience capacity based on venue restrictions,” reads an unsigned article in Monday’s (7/27) Fort Worth Business Press (TX). “Due to these heavy restrictions, intended to protect patron safety, the FWSO has moved its Pops Series to the Will Rogers Memorial Auditorium. The Symphonic Series will continue to be performed at Bass Performance Hall. The symphony said in a news release that the organization has worked closely with venues and government health officials to ensure its live performances are safe for patrons, musicians, and staff. ‘We recognize that the COVID-19 pandemic is still here in Texas, unfortunately, which is why we modified our schedule to insure our patrons are safe and socially-distant while experiencing the power of live music,’ says [President and CEO] Keith Cerny.… Subscribers will be provided new seating arrangements to accommodate the venue capacity. Additionally, the FWSO has added a fourth Saturday matinee performance to the Symphonic Series to adequately meet subscriber demand.”
