Spokane Symphony moves entire 75th Season to September 2021 due to Covid-19

Due to ongoing health concerns about the Covid-19 virus and the governor's and county health department's guidance and restrictions on large public gatherings, the Spokane Symphony's Board of Trustees decided at their July 21 meeting to transplant the entire upcoming 75th season of the Spokane Symphony to September 2021.

The Spokane Symphony's free Labor Day parks concerts in Liberty Lake at Pavillion Park and at Comstock Park on Spokane's South Hill are canceled as well.

"It was a painful decision, but it was the right thing to do for the health and safety of our musicians and the public. The Symphony will continue to be an active, collaborative and constructive member of the Inland Northwest community. We're working diligently to make sure the Spokane Symphony remains vital and relevant to our region," said Board President Elizabeth Kelley.

The Spokane Symphony will be active with education and outreach events during the upcoming 75th season, and smaller music events will be planned as health and safety guidelines allow.

"Like orchestras all over the world, the Spokane Symphony has no choice but to adapt to the realities of the coronavirus crisis. Even though we're moving the entire 75th season of music to next year, it doesn't mean that the orchestra and Fox Theater will be going dark. We are busy developing education and outreach ideas, and we'll find ways to keep the flame of classical music burning in the Inland Northwest. Now, more than ever, we need the human connection that music brings," said Music Director James Lowe. Lowe just completed his first season with the Spokane Symphony, and did the majority of the planning of the music repertoire for the 75th season.

Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox, owned and operated by the Spokane Symphony, will continue to book 'Fox Presents' events and rental concerts into 2021, as health and safety guidelines permit.

Current Spokane Symphony season subscribers and ticketholders can keep their existing seats for next season. Keeping the same seats locks in the current subscription price for the next season. Ticketholders may exchange tickets for 'symphony credit,' with an added bonus of 10%, which may be used through the end of the 2021-22 season. Ticketholders can donate the value of their tickets to the Spokane Symphony and will receive an acknowledgement of the tax-deductible gift. Refunds are available, but people are encouraged to keep in mind that the coronavirus has put the Spokane Symphony in a dire financial situation.

Central Food's David Blaine, donates entire food inventory to Hope House, VOA

With recent plans to reopen Central Food, owner and chef David Blaine (pictured above), made the decision to temporarily close his restaurant again in support of the health and safety of his staff. With this change he found himself with a full kitchen of food inventory that would not be used as originally intended.

Having previously worked with Beth McRae, community ambassador and Volunteers of America (VOA) food coordinator, and with donating supplies to Hope House Shelter, David quickly connected with VOA and generously donated all food items to feed the women at Hope House. Not only has David been a staple in the restaurant industry for over the last 30 years, his sous chef, Joel Jordan, and baker, Alicia Purvis, have regularly donated bread and meals to Hope House every week. VOA and Hope House are so grateful for David, his team, and the generous food donations they have made for the vulnerable women in need in our community.
