Rituals – Rescheduled, See Irresistible on June 18
January 8, 7:30 PM:
In light of how the current pandemic circumstances affect everything involved in presenting a symphony orchestra concert, it has become necessary to postpone our January 8 performance. While the musicians’ Orchestra Committee, Yaniv, and I believe that daily testing during the four days of rehearsal and performance would create safe conditions for the orchestra on stage, the availability of the tests is becoming more and more difficult. Therefore, we cannot ensure this protocol could be successfully implemented. In addition, any musician who tested positive or had to isolate because of exposure would be unavailable to perform. This would make putting on a high quality concert very difficult if not impossible. We regret having to take this action but can assure you we are now working on the steps necessary to present all of our remaining season and rescheduling the January 8 concert.
President and CEO
Please watch for emails from the NBSO and the Zeiterion for the new concert date. All tickets issued for the January 8 concert will be honored on the rescheduled date, so be sure to hold onto your tickets until then! If you are unable to attend on the new date, we will be happy to exchange your tickets for another concert or issue a refund. You may also consider giving the ticket amount back to the NBSO as a tax-deductible donation.
We apologize for any inconvenience!
