Due to the severe weather conditions and Excessive Heat Advisory in St. Louis, we will be postponing the Chamber Music Society of St Louis concert at the Enterprise Pavilion in Clayton’s Shaw Park, scheduled for Thursday, August 26, at 6 pm. The extreme heat poses a health risk to the CMSSL musicians, staff and audience. These weather conditions are dangerous for the very expensive musical instruments as well. It certainly would not be a pleasurable experience for our audience to listen to the music under these circumstances… this free concert is intended for your enjoyment. We are also mindful of the already difficult strain on our front line workers and do not want to provide any increased stress on the systems.
Here is the plan going forward. We are tentatively rescheduling for the planned “rain date” of Friday, August 27, at 6 pm…. BUT…. it is not expected that Friday will be much of an improvement weather-wise. We are working with our partners, the City of Clayton, Classic 107.3 and Ariel Premier Supply to find another date that will provide a better experience for everyone.
Thank you for your patience and understanding
Chamber Music Society of St. Louis
