The Ocala Symphony Orchestra has canceled Symphony Under the Lights, previously scheduled for Friday, Dec. 4.

This was a very difficult decision, but we believe it is the best option to ensure the safety of our musicians and audience members.” said Pamela Calero Wardell, Executive Director. “A majority of our musicians would be traveling from out of town to perform at the event and this played heavily on our decision. We are looking forward to performances in the new year.”

In lieu of Symphony Under the Lights the OSO will be sharing musical cheer throughout the community in other ways throughout the month of December beginning with our #givingtuesday Give Back performances featuring the OSO Brass Quintet at downtown locations including:  

  • 10-10:30 AM – Hilton Garden Inn Outdoor Terrace
  • 11-11:30 AM – Ocala Electric Utility Customer Service Office
  • 12-12:30 PM – Dignity Roasters
