Abilene, Kan.- The Eisenhower Presidential Library, Eisenhower Foundation, and Salina Symphony have announced the cancellation of the June 5th Symphony at Sunset concert. Officials with each organization agree that current circumstances do not allow for such an event due to concerns from the pandemic and current guidance from Federal officials.

“It is with sadness we announce this cancellation. With an outdoor event of this magnitude we are not equipped to maintain safe social distancing protocols. While we had hoped to hold this special concert, concern for the welfare of all makes such gatherings unfeasible,” states Dawn Hammatt, Eisenhower Presidential Library director.

“Symphony at Sunset is a beloved event for our musicians and patrons, and we are deeply disappointed to be unable to perform this year’s concert,” said Adrienne Allen, Salina Symphony executive director. “We very much look forward to resuming the Symphony at Sunset tradition on June 4, 2022."
