NSO Down
Nashville Symphony Orchestra just cancelled the entire 2020/21 season. They call it "hiatus". The musicians and staff have been "furloughed".

Their official announcement is here.

The gist appears to be that they already canceled 65 concerts and events so far this year representing 30% of their annual operating revenue.

"As our community continues to reopen, concert venues will be required to maintain social distancing for an unspecified amount of time. Because of our high operational costs – which total $2.3 million each month – we cannot sustainably operate with social distancing, due to the loss of revenue associated with reduced audience capacity.
Postponing the concert season we had originally planned provides us with what we hope will be sufficient time for the pandemic to run its course, and for the Nashville Symphony to conserve its limited resources until we have reasonable assurance that we can safely resume concerts and welcome the community back to our concert hall."

Such a shame. That hall is pretty incredible.
