Weather shuts down concerts

Because of the snowstorm, all University of Richmond classes and events for the evening of Feb. 16, including a recital by organist Bruce Stevens, have been canceled. Stevens has rescheduled his program, at Cannon Memorial Chapel on the UR campus, to 3 p.m. March 1. Admission is free.

A jazz concert by saxophonist Al Regni and pianist Allen Farnham at Virginia Commonwealth University also has been canceled, as VCU announced its closure on the evening of Feb. 16 and all day Feb. 17.

Other performances in coming days are likely to be canceled or postponed because of the weather, especially in central and western Virginia, where the heaviest snowfall is expected, followed by extremely cold temperatures until the weekend.
