The annual Holiday at Peace concert series with the Greenville Symphony Orchestra has been canceled.
The Greenville Symphony had carefully planned to bring the concert series to The Peace Center this year and consulted with health experts on how to safely return to performing music in front of a live audience, said Julianne Fish, executive director of the Greenville Symphony.
“Extensive operational safety protocols have been put in place, and major modifications have been made to [The Peace Center’s] theaters to create the healthiest buildings possible,” Fish said in an email to Greenville Symphony board members. “However, based on the recent aggressive surge in COVID-19 cases, the Greenville Symphony has made the difficult decision to cancel Holiday at Peace, and everyone is deeply saddened by this cancellation.”
One performance of Holiday at Peace will be recorded, according to Fish.
Patrons will be notified on Wednesday and have the option to donate the value of their tickets or receive a refund.
