Brooklyn’s Soapbox Gallery has announced that Mark Padmore’s previously announced concerts have been canceled.

In an official statement, the company noted that “Due to positive COVID-19 tests in the production staff, the remaining dates of Sono Fest! at Soapbox Gallery have been canceled… This includes tonight’s concert (June 12) with the Momenta Quartet, the concerts June 13-18, and the ‘Coda’ concert with tenor Mark Padmore on June 23.”

Padmore was set to perform alongside pianist Ethan Iverson in a program featuring music by Britten, Schubert, Ives, Holst, Copland, and many others. They were also set to be joined by Brooklyn-based poet Sarah Deming reciting poetry.

There were supposed to be two concerts, both on at the 23rd at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. , respectively.
