From the Utrecht Early Music Festival:

To our great regret, we have to announce that the Festival Oude Music Utrecht 2020 cannot continue due to the corona crisis.

For the first time in the history of the festival we have to cancel an edition. That hurts, but public health is the most important thing right now. The safety of our visitors, musicians, volunteers and employees is the first one. In the context of the corona crisis, this decision was unfortunately inevitable.

At the moment, we are looking at the feasible to move the festival program to 2021 (August 27 to September 5).

    Sad but expected.

    The Madison Early Music Festival (MEMF) has done the same thing. Postponed until later. I think this is smart.

    Early music festival becomes late music festival.

    Ha, ha…
