The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra postpones January concerts



Rochester, New York — Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the current high levels of COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations in the Finger Lakes region, the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra has announced it will be postponing several performances.

According to the RPO, this impacts all of its concerts scheduled between Jan. 13 and Jan. 29.

That includes:

• “Andreas Conducts Beethoven” (January 13 & 15)
• “Jurassic Park In Concert” (January 21 & 22)
• “OrKIDStra: Pirates! The Quest for Blackbeard’s Treasure” (January 23)
• “Danzmayr Returns” (January 27 & 29)

The U of R has also limited indoor gatherings on campus to no more than 10 people through the end of January.

The pause is in response to the University of Rochester’s decision to cancel or postpone all concerts, master classes, and special events scheduled through January 31.

“While we will miss performing live for you, the health and safety of our audiences, musicians, staff, and volunteers is of the highest priority,” explained RPO President & CEO Curt Long. “We are very grateful for the community’s continued support during this ever-changing environment, and we look forward to performing again on February 10 and 12 with Don Quixote, led by our wonderful Music Director Andreas Delfs.”

The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra has also canceled its free 2022-23 season preview concert scheduled for Feb. 16.
