The main fundraiser for the Minnesota Orchestra has been postponed.

The Symphony Ball was originally slated to happen in September and has been pushed back to next year, as the co-chairs organizing the ball have stepped down.

According to orchestra spokeswoman Gwen Pappas, the ball will still fall within Fiscal Year 2015, so the orchestra won’t lose funding for that year. 

“In order to offer the new chairs—who are yet to be named—enough time to plan for the event, the Ball will most likely be held in June 2015, which has historically been the timeframe for the fundraiser,” said Pappas in a statement to KSTP.

The Symphony Ball usually generates about $1 million gross revenue for the Minnesota Orchestra.
