The Fort Wayne Philharmonic recently announced the postponement of its Season until at least January 30, 2021, and the implementation of resource-saving measures. Please see below for a press release announcing the decision.
It is with deep regret that we announce that our Board of Directors voted on July 14, 2020 to suspend all concerts until Jan. 30, 2021, and to implement resource-saving measures, including musician furloughs and reduction of five full and part-time staff positions, effective Sept. 1. Read the announcement here.
As challenging as this time is, please know the Philharmonic is committed to a safe and viable return to the stage as soon as is possible. We’re working on a schedule of concerts that begins on Jan. 30, 2021 and runs through May. Box Office staff will contact ticket holders by the end of August with options for the spring season.
We thank our dedicated patrons, donors, sponsors, volunteers, and friends for their flexibility, patience, and support during this challenging time. Here’s how you can further support us over the next several months:
- Make a contribution: Our work to provide arts access to Northeast Indiana continues. Consider supporting us by making a tax-deductible donation here.
- Engage with us virtually: While in-person events are canceled due to COVID, the Philharmonic continues to provide content to its patrons through online and radio platforms. Learn about and register for our virtual educational programs here.
- Participate in our survey: During this pause in concert activity, the Philharmonic will invite patrons and community members to help plan the future. In the coming weeks, an important survey will be sent to you. We appreciate your participation as it will ensure that the institution looks to the future and does its utmost to serve everyone in Northeast Indiana. Also, focus groups will be convened in September, allowing a wide variety of people to share their thoughts about the future of the Fort Wayne Philharmonic.
