Wale spring concert canceled amid coronavirus outbreak


Program Board's Spring Concert featuring Wale and Social House has been canceled.

Program Board President Madison Mariles said the April 24 event will not be rescheduled. Those who have already purchased tickets are eligible for a full refund from Ticket Central, according to a Program Board press release.

"Program Board strives to create safe and fun programs for all students and community members to enjoy," the release read. "To ensure that safety, Program Board is following the Center for Disease Control’s current recommendation to not host events in which more than 10 people will be present."

The announcement comes after many CMU-sponsored events have been canceled for the immediate future by President Bob Davies. Classes will continue in an online format for now until at least April 6. 

Tickets went on sale Feb. 10, with prices between $10 to $25.
