DSO Cancels Klyde Warren Park Performance

Since cold weather can damage wooden instruments, the DSO’s Brass Quintet will fill in.


The forecast for temperatures in the 40s has forced the Dallas Symphony Orchestra to cancel its planned 11 a.m. performance at Klyde Warren Park on Saturday. The cold air could potentially damage wooden string and woodwind instruments. Instead, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra Brass Quintet will perform at the ribbon cutting Saturday morning.

“We regret Mother Nature did not cooperate on such an exciting and important day,” DSO President and CEO Jonathan Martin said in a news release. “All of us at the Dallas Symphony welcome the opening of Klyde Warren Park, and congratulate our new neighbors in developing such a vital new link connecting the Dallas Arts District to the surrounding communities. We are thrilled to be participating tomorrow with our fabulous brass musicians, and look forward to future performances in the park by the full Dallas Symphony.”
