The Dallas Symphony Orchestra said on Tuesday that it was postponing its planned tour of Europe this April, citing safety concerns in the wake of the recent terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernadino, Calif.
“Due to the recent and tragic events in Europe and the United States, and based on extensive conversations with national and international security professionals, the Dallas Symphony’s executive board along with its executive management and artistic leadership have made the very difficult decision to postpone the April 2016 European tour,’’ the Dallas Symphony Association said in a statement.
“After careful deliberation,” the statement continued, “we believe that there is an elevated risk to the safety of our musicians and their families, guest artists, D.S.O. personnel and traveling patrons, and therefore will not be proceeding with the tour at this time.”
