AKRON, Ohio — The Akron Symphony Orchestra has cancelled its concert scheduled for January 19 due to inclement weather.

“We apologize for any inconvenience our decision may cause, but the safety of our musicians, staff and customers is our primary concern,” said Thomas Moor, director of marketing for the Orchestra. “With the forecast calling for heavy snow and high winds, we believe this is the right decision to make for everyone involved.”

The Orchestra was planning to give away free tickets to furloughed federal workers for Saturday, but with the cancellation, they decided to offer tickets to another show should the government shutdown continue.

Those who bought tickets are able to receive refunds.
