BRQ Vantaa cancels festival 2020
The Board of BRQ Vantaa has decided that, due to the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the BRQ Vantaa festival focusing on early music and period instruments cannot be held this year. The programme for this year’s festival will, however, be replicated as closely as possible in August 2021. The corona situation permitting, some individual small-scale concerts will be held in the meantime, with due consideration for health and safety.
We are truly sorry that the unique festival of concerts planned for this year over a long period of time cannot be held. Health is, however, without question our primary concern in the present situation. The safety of our musicians, volunteers, workers and above all audiences takes precedence over all else. The financial risk of holding the festival this year was, it was felt, also immoderately high, and we do not wish to endanger the future of the festival because of the present state of emergency.
Tickets had not yet gone on sale for the concerts in the programme for the 2020 festival announced in March, so there is no need for reimbursement.
Wishing you and your loved ones safe and healthy months to come!
