Due to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra musicians strike Merit will not be able to hold its annual MeritFest event at Symphony Center on May 6 and has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s event.  Unfortunately, there are not viable venue alternatives for such a large event this late in the planning process.
