East coast Weather caused Peoria concert cancellation

While the only weather problem in Peoria this weekend was a cold wind, the area saw a good example how bad weather elsewhere can have far reaching consequences.

It was, after all, bad weather along the east coast that caused the cancellation of the Peoria Symphony Orchestra Valentine’s Day concert on Saturday night, the PSO announced on Monday.

Quartetto Gelato, the special guest artists scheduled to play the concert, was unable to get to Peoria on Saturday, forcing the cancellation. The Symphony itself was not scheduled to perform in this concert.

The Symphony learned of the problem at 4 p.m. that day, a mere four hours before the concert was to begin, it said in a news release.

As soon as it was notified, the Symphony used the Internet, email and social media to try and alert its patrons to the dilemma. It apologized for the inconvenience, particularly to those who did not receive the message before arriving at the Peoria Civic Center, expecting the concert.

The Symphony said it is working with Quartetto Gelato and the Civic Center to reschedule the concert and will announce the new date when possible.
