The Phil cancels July 7

“Barbeque of Seville” concert

at Manchester University

The July 7 “Barbeque of Seville” concert of the Fort Wayne Philharmonic is canceled, but Manchester University and its neighbors will get another opportunity to enjoy The Phil, says its president, J.L. Nave.

Slow advance ticket sales for the mid-summer concert, when students are not on the North Manchester campus, led to the cancelation.

“We are all disappointed to not perform the concert, but with all new ventures comes risk,” said Nave. “This will definitely not deter us from continuing to serve and entertain the North Manchester community in other ways throughout the year.”

The Phil will continue discussions with Manchester University administrators for future campus performances. Details will be announced as they are finalized.

Patrons who purchased advance tickets should contact the location where they purchased their tickets for a full refund. Contact The Phil Box Office at 260 481-0765 or Manchester Conference Services at 260-982-5551.
