Due to the Covid-19 restrictions currently in place New Zealand Symphony Orchestra have had to make some changes to the upcoming Podium Series Inspiration Concerts in Wellington (18 Sept) and Auckland (25 Sept). These concerts have been renamed Eroica and the programme will now be:
Miguel Harth-Bedoya Conductor
Vesa-Matti Leppänen Violin
Anthony Ritchie Remember Parihaka
Sibelius Violin Concerto
Beethoven Symphony No. 3 Eroica
This tour is still dependent on New Zealand returning to Alert Level 1 on Thursday 17 September. If the country remains at Alert Level 2, the concert will be a live-streamed performance only on Friday 18 September without an audience.
All tickets purchased for Inspiration are valid for the renamed Eroica concerts.
Covid-19 continues to challenge all orchestras. While we will continue to perform and tour this year, we must adapt where necessary to ensure our concerts can go ahead. In this instance, social distancing requirements mean we wouldn’t be able to adequately rehearse the original Inspiration programme due to the number of musicians required on stage.
Thank you for your ongoing support and patience. Our goal is to continue to bring great music to you in 2020.
