The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra announced May 4 it is canceling the 2020 Symphony on the Prairie summer outdoor concert series at Conner Prairie in Fishers due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The release stated: “Due to ongoing physical distancing recommendations and crowd size regulations from local, state and federal authorities, the ISO anticipates it will be several months before musicians and patrons can safely gather for concerts in reasonable numbers. Even if concert restrictions are lifted mid-summer in the state’s reopening plan, the remaining guidelines combined with the infrastructure required for producing Symphony on the Prairie is so complex that presenting a partial season is not financially feasible.”
For those who have purchased a value pack, ISO has provided three options.
Ticket donation: ISO would like patrons to consider a tax-deductible donation of the value of the ISO tickets to support ISO’s mission during the challenging economic times.
Value Pack Voucher Exchange: Symphony on the Prairie Value Pack holders may exchange their current Value Pack for 10 ticket vouchers to the 2021 40th season of Symphony on the Prairie performances.
Value Pack Gift Certificate: Symphony on the Prairie Value Pack holders may exchange their current Value Pack for a gift certificate, which is good through August 2021. This gift certificate can be applied to any ISO performances throughout the season.
