Patriotic pop concert fizzles this year

Sept. 7 concert cancelled due to covid-19 risks

Due to continued restrictions on large gatherings because of the COVID-19 virus, the annual Patriotic Pops Concert, scheduled for Sept. 7 at Ohio Northern University, has been canceled for 2020, with plans to again hold the event in 2021. The concert features the Lima Symphony Orchestra.

This decision was made after consultation with Hardin County Health Department officials and is in accordance with the Ohio Department of Health’s extended restrictions on mass gatherings.

It was determined that holding the concert would pose too large of a risk for concert-goers, musicians and volunteers.
