China National Symphony date canceled

The China National Symphony Orchestra, citing concern for the security of its musicians following the mass shooting in October at a Las Vegas music festival, has canceled its North American tour, which was to have included a Feb. 14 performance at Richmond’s Dominion Arts Center.

That date’s presenter, the University of Richmond’s Modlin Arts Center, will give refunds on tickets at the point of purchase.

For more information, call the Modlin Center box office at (804) 289-8980.
