July 07--The 19th annual Southeast Iowa Symphony Orchestra Symphonic Blast will return at a later date.

The popular mix of orchestra music and fireworks had to be postponed Saturday night due to rain, and SEISO manager Kate Gerst promises a new date will be announced soon. The concert had never been postponed due to rain, though it was postponed two years ago due to overly dry conditions.

Some social media and local news outlets erroneously reported Sunday that it would be held Sunday night.
