Inclement weather Thursday afternoon and evening has forced the cancellation of a Virginia Symphony Orchestra concert at William & Mary.
The concert was originally scheduled to be held at William & Mary’s Martha Wren Briggs Amphitheatre at Lake Matoaka, the City of Williamsburg said in a news release.
The event will not be rescheduled because the symphony’s fall concert schedule has already been finalized, the city said.
Both William & Mary and the symphony agreed to cancel the concert due to the threat of thunder and lightning storms.
The Virginia Symphony Orchestra also does not allow its musicians to play in wet weather.
“We regret the cancellation of this very popular event,” the city said in the release.
The symphony’s concert schedule can be found on the Virginia Symphony Orchestra website.
