Due to Hurricane Ian, The Florida Orchestra is postponing our 55th Celebration benefit concert featuring Itzhak Perlman scheduled for this Saturday, Oct. 1, at the Mahaffey Theater.

Like everyone, we have been monitoring this storm closely, and we believe this is the best decision for the safety of everyone, now and after the storm.

The concert, which features Perlman’s favorite film music under the baton of Michael Francis, will be rescheduled for later this year, and all patrons should hang on to their tickets. Details will be announced when available. The benefit concert supports TFO’s artistic initiatives and education programs all year long.

TFO Ticket Center closed: The orchestra’s Ticket Center and administrative offices, located in the St. Petersburg College building downtown, are closed now and will remain closed until it is safe to reopen. Please check the website for updates when possible.

From all of us at The Florida Orchestra, please stay safe as this dangerous storm approaches.
