Detroit Symphony Orchestra concert canceled over COVID-19 contact


Detroit – The Detroit Symphony Orchestra has canceled a “digital concert” scheduled for Friday night after an orchestra member “came into close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19,” officials said in a press release.

The concert should be conducted by DSO music director Jader Bignamini, who conducts Beethoven symphonies.

“DSO is reviewing various options to move today’s program to next week, along with the orchestra’s annual Home for the Holidays program,” said a DSO press release on Friday.

Rescheduling announcements will be posted on and on social media. If you have any questions, please contact DSO Box Office Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at [email protected] or (313) 576-5111
