“The Redlands Symphony Orchestra is rescheduling some of the four concerts remaining in its 2021-22 season, to avoid the peak of the current COVID-19 surge,” reads an unsigned article in Friday’s (1/15) Press-Enterprise (Riverside, CA). “The concert originally scheduled for Jan. 22, ‘Mozart: The Essence of Music,’ has been rescheduled for March 26. Other concerts rescheduled are ‘Brahms: Passion and Tenderness,’ moved from Feb. 5 to May 28; and ‘An Evening Recital with Francois Dumont and Ransom Wilson,’ moved from March 26 to June 12. The ‘Dvořák in America’ concert date, May 14, has not been changed. All the concerts except the June 12 recital will be performed in Memorial Chapel on the campus of the University of Redlands…. The recital will be performed at another location that will be announced later. ‘We are taking this step out of an abundance of caution for the well-being of our patrons, musicians and staff, and with the hope that we can avoid the peak of the current spread of the omicron variant,’ Paul Ideker, the symphony’s president and chief executive officer, said in a news release.”
