Dubuque (KWWL) -- The Dubuque Symphony Orchestra (DSO) canceled the Ultimate Country Hits concert.
The concert was originally scheduled for May 15 and 16, 2020.
"Despite our optimistic hopes and best efforts for trying to reschedule this concert, we have unfortunately decided to cancel. The ongoing pandemic makes mass gatherings much too risky and nearly impossible to do with adequate social distancing, " said Executive Director Mark Wahlert.
"Despite this cancellation, please know that the Dubuque Symphony Orchestra is dedicated to continuing to provide live musical experiences in whatever way possible throughout this time of uncertainty. Now, more than ever, please keep music an important part of your lives. We look forward to seeing you in-person at a DSO performance in the future."
Season subscribers who bought tickets through the DSO office will be refunded by mail.
Single ticket holders who bought tickets through the Mississippi Moon Bar can request a refund by calling (563) 690-4754 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
