Amstertdam MahlerFest - Any chance it might be cancelled?
« on: March 09, 2020, 06:10:05 AM »
The NY Phil (M1 and M2) is the only orchestra on the schedule that has to travel inter-continental, so that might be the likeliness cancellation.  All the other orchestras are European.   So far the Netherlands has not been hard hit by Corona.

It's very much a 'wait and see' situation, don't you think? All of northern Italy is in a lock-down.

At the Facebook Mahler group, someone posted that the Concertgebouw is closed until March 31.

Simon Reinink, director of the Concertgebouw, responded on Twitter by saying that they are following government guidelines. This means that if the Dutch government extends its ban on public events of over 100 people until after mid-may, the festival will be canceled/postponed/adjusted.
