City of Wichita Falls Press Release regarding Memorial Auditorium

February 23, 2022

Wichita Falls Memorial Auditorium

Wichita Falls, Texas- The City of Wichita Falls is addressing a situation with the ceiling above the stage at Memorial Auditorium.

Safety is the number one priority and the measures are being taken to address a problem with loose fire protection coating on structural steel beams above the stage. This is not a structural issue.
It is out of an abundance of caution that a Wichita Falls Symphony concert on February 26, 2022 be canceled at the Auditorium. Officials feel this is in the best interest of the safety of the performers. We regret any inconvenience this will cause to both the Symphony and its patrons and hope to have the issue fixed as soon as possible.
