Those who’ve been waiting for the last year to see Tony-award winning actor and “Hamilton” Broadway star Leslie Odom, Jr. with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra will have to wait a few months more.

The show, originally scheduled for next Friday, has been postponed to July 5 due to a scheduling conflict for Odom, the BSO announced today. “We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this postponement,” the orchestra said in an announcement.

Anyone who’s already secured tickets should be hearing from the BSO. They’ll be able to use the tickets dated April 26 to get in on July 5, or can exchange them by contacting the box office.

There are still tickets available in all sections of the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, a seating map shows. Prices range from $45 at the terrace level to $125 in the Grand Tier boxes.

Odom, a career actor and singer, won Tony and Grammy awards in 2016 for his performance as infamous Vice President and dueling champion Aaron Burr in Lin Manuel Miranda’s mega hit on Broadway. He’s also released two solo jazz albums, had roles on “CSI: Miami,” “Smash,” “Law and Order: SVU” and numerous other shows, played in 2017’s “Murder on the Orient Express” and wrote the book “Failing Up.”

With the BSO, he’ll be performing hits from “Hamilton,” the rock musical “Spring Awakening,” as well as Nat King Cole classics and more.
