A schools performance in the Klasse Klassik series at the Gasteig, planned for Sunday morning, has been called off after concerns were expressed by the Ministry of Education and various health institutes.

More than 400 schoolchildren had been rehearsing for the event with conductor Ivan Repusic and the concert was to have been broadcast across Bavaria.

    I feel sorry for the kids. The concert would have been fun!

  • Mustafa Kandan says:

    It is children, elderly, people with existing health issues and immunocompromised who are most at risk after contracting the virus. Of course, the risk increases for anyone over fifty, but overall most people outside of the above groups may recover relatively quickly. In this instance the cancellation was the prudent decision.
