Lubbock Symphony delays start of season to January 2021

Posted on: September 17, 2020

“For over 75 years the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra has brought musicians from all over Lubbock together,” writes Grace Morris in Tuesday’s (9/15) (Lubbock, TX). “This year, because of COVID-19 they have had to postpone their concert season until January…. They are planning to take extra safety precautions for when they restart their season. There will be temperature checks, a limited audience and number of performers to maintain social distancing, and choir singers will be moved off stage to control potential germ spreading.… For concertmaster Annie Chalex Boyle, January can’t come soon enough. ‘Probably our first concerts are going to be on the smaller side with few people on the stage but oh—I’ll take even a handful. That would be just wonderful,’ said Chalex Boyle…. ‘We really are anxious to get out there and play again. We are just all itching to get out but not at the sacrifice of safety,’ said President and CEO Galen Wixson…. They are currently running a virtual concert series where … musicians play some music individually followed by a question and answer. All links to those concerts are on the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra’s Facebook page.”
