FARGO — Citing a rise in the number of COVID-19 cases, the Fargo-Moorhead Symphony Orchestra announced that the third Masterworks concerts of the season, scheduled for Jan. 22 and 23, have been canceled.

The January concert traditionally features members of the FMSO playing alongside their counterparts in the Fargo-Moorhead Area Youth Symphonies.

FMSO Executive Director Paul Hegland said they may try to reschedule the side-by-side number into one of the final Masterworks concerts, March 19 and 20 or April 9 and 10.

The next FMSO performance will be the pops concert on Feb. 26 at the Fargo Theatre, A Night at the Oscars , featuring favorite music from film and Hollywood.
