The Concertgebouw has lost its central piece of programming. Here’s what they are telling ticket-holders:
According to our records, you have purchased one or more tickets for the Mahler Festival 2021. Due to the restrictions for concert halls and traveling orchestras due to the pandemic, we regrettably have to cancel the festival. This follows consultation with all the orchestras and conductors involved.
What should I do with my concert tickets?
You can exchange your concert tickets for a voucher, which you can then use to purchase tickets for a different concert of your choice at The Concertgebouw. The voucher will be valid for a period of two years from the date of issue. Should you not wish to attend another concert, you can choose to convert your concert tickets into a donation, or request a refund.
If you donate your tickets, we share the proceeds with the performers of the relevant concerts. Every amount donated is received with great gratitude. Your donation is regarded as a contribution to the ANBI The Concertgebouw Fund and is deductible with your income tax return (if you are a resident of The Netherlands).
UPDATE: Leipzig has also pulled out.
