Salem Band summer concerts through Aug. 11 have been canceled due to COVID-19 concerns, Eileen Young, music director, announced late last week.
"This was a difficult decision to make, but it was made with the safety and health of our band members and our audiences in mind," Young said.
The next, tentatively schedule Salem Band concert, will be "Beethoven Lives!" at 3 p.m. Sept. 20, in Hanes Auditorium in the Elberson Fine Arts Center at Salem College in Winston-Salem. This concert will be part of the #BTHVNRocksWS series sponsored by Mercedes-Benz of Winston-Salem.
The canceled Salem Band 2020 concert dates are today (May 19), June 9, July 4, July 21 and Aug. 11.
