It was announced on Thursday that the Cleveland Orchestra’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration Concert and Community Day has been postponed due to the current spike of coronavirus infections and a high transmission rating from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The concert was slated for Sunday, Jan. 16, while the community day was set for Monday, Jan. 17.
The celebration concert has now been rescheduled for Saturday, June 4 at Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Concert Hall at Severance. Orchestra officials say the new date for ticket distribution will be announced in the next couple of months.
With no live concert and community day this month, people may instead enjoy a free stream of the 2018 Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration Concert from Jan. 17 through Feb. 28 on the Adella App and Adella Live, The Cleveland Orchestra’s video streaming service.
