WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — Officials with the Wichita Falls Symphony Orchestra announced Tuesday their concert scheduled for January 23 will be held without a live audience due to rising infection rates of COVID-19 in Wichita County.

A reduced complement of WFSO musicians will still gather to perform the concert as planned with a professional video recorded and made available for on-demand viewing beginning January 30.

According to a press release, the board of directors of the WFSO voted to hold the concert without a live audience, stating a more cautious approach is best at this time when COVID-19 infections are once again on the rise.

“The safety of our musicians, audience and staff is always going to be our highest priority,” Fouad Fakhouri, WFSO Music Director said.
