Saturday’s Florida Orchestra concert featuring iconic violinist Itzhak Perlman, a celebration of the orchestra’s 55th anniversary, has been postponed because of Hurricane Ian’s imminent arrival.

The Florida Orchestra’s Oct. 2 Pops in the Park concert, in Tampa’s River Tower Park, was canceled Monday.

The Saturday concert, at St. Petersburg’s Mahaffey Theater, was to benefit for TFO’s artistic initiatives and education programs.
