A press release sent to KSST by Linda Galligher, President of the Northeast Texas Symphony League, explains the cancellation of the annual Independence Concert, which due to COVID-19 limitations was re-set for September 5, 2020 from it’s original date of June 27, 2020.

The Sulphur Springs Symphony League’s Board is sad to announce that the Independence Day Concert that had been postponed to Labor Day weekend, September 5th has been cancelled.   Unfortunately we do not have the luxury of waiting until closer to concert date to make a decision like this.   Work starts early, hiring musicians, buying music, getting everything lined out for this event has to be done well in advance of the actual event.  The board felt that we could not continue to spend money preparing for the concert and a decision had to be made.  After talking with City and County officials we made the decision to cancel the concert.     The musicians had safety concerns as well that we were having a hard time addressing, so for all these reasons, we decided to cancel the event for 2020.      We’ve loved having the concert for the past 28 years and look  forward to having the concert June 26, 2021.
