In order to stop the spread of the new coronavirus, concerts and theatrical performances of all kinds have been cancelled in most European countries until September 2020.
We understand that it has to be done, since large gatherings in enclosed spaces and choral singing are, unfortunately, extremely effective ways to spread the virus. At the same time, this is a terrible situation for us freelancers, who have extremely limited financial and legal resources to balance out the income we will lose.
Thank you to all the concert organisers, governmental agencies and other organisations who have promised and delivered financial help via cancellation fees, grant funds and the possibility to teach remotely.
We hope that at least some of the concerts will take place at a later date, when the situation has improved. Until then, stay healthy and let's hope we all get better soon.
