ACO Suspended Performances: COVID-19

Sunday March 15, 2020

In response to the developing COVID-19 outbreak, the Federal Government has asked the States and Territories to put in place measures suspending mass indoor gatherings from Monday 16 March. As a result our ‘Arvo Pärt & Shostakovich’ concerts, scheduled to tour nationally from 19 March to 1 April, are no longer able to proceed.

All ‘Arvo Pärt & Shostakovich’ ticketholders will be contacted directly by our Box Office from Monday 16 March with further information on ticket exchanges, credits and refunds.

The health, safety and wellbeing of our audiences, musicians and staff is our highest priority, and we will continue to monitor the situation closely and act in accordance with the advice of the Federal and State Governments together with our industry colleagues. We will provide updates in the coming days on the situation and any future performances that may also be impacted.

We understand this is an unsettling time for communities and we greatly value your ongoing support and understanding at this extremely difficult time.

On behalf of Richard Tognetti and our musicians, we look forward to welcoming you back into the concert hall as soon as we safely can.

In the meantime, watch out for further announcements from us about streamed performances and activities to your living room, and please visit our Spotify for a little solace in these unusual times.
