Threat of Hurricane Floyd leads BSO to cancel concert


For the first time since the blizzard of 1996, when pianist Evgeny Kissin's recital and other concerts fell victim to massive drifts of snow, bad weather forced the cancellation of a performance at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall last night.

Hurricane Floyd meant the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and pianist Peter Roesel didn't perform their program of Prokofiev, Wagner and Schumann.

The BSO and soloist will take the stage tonight at 8 and tomorrow at 11 a.m. (The Schumann is not on the Saturday program.) There are seats available for both concerts.

If you bought a ticket for last night's concert, you may exchange it for another performance at the Meyerhoff, with certain exceptions, as long as you do so by 6 p.m. Sept. 24.

You can swap your ticket by visiting the box office, by phone (410-783-8000), by fax (410-783-8131) or by mail (Attention: Ticket office, Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, 1212 Cathedral St., Baltimore 21201). Tickets may also be donated back to the orchestra.
