Musica in Viaggio cancelled and new summer project

3-5-2021

Unfortunately we came to the conclusion that it will not be able to go with a group of 80 musicians to Verona, Italy this summer. The Italian government has prolonged strict corona regulations until the end of July. For MACO this means that it will be too risky and irresponsible with such a big group to travel to a foreign country and giving concerts there. For that reason we had to make the difficult decision to cancel our tour ‘Musica in Viaggio’ for the summer 2021.   

Of course, the plans for a summer tour are ready and we will make the same project on a later moment (Probably July 2022).      
                                  
Nieuw project
Even though our summer tour to Italy is cancelled, the MACO team has been hard at work organizing a new tour, this will take place at the same period (2-11 July) in The Netherlands in the form of a concert tour with the following programme:
- Franz Schubert - Ouverture im Italienischen Stile in C no. 2 D. 591
- Ralph Vaughan Williams - The Lark Ascending (soloist: Mimi Jung)
- Ludwig van Beethoven - Symphony No. 3 op. 55 'Eroica'

As you might expect, we are forced by the corona regulations to reduce the orchestra from a number of 80 to 50 musicians. We have to do this to be able to fit in the concert locations in The Netherlands where we have to maintain the 1,5 meter distance in the orchestra.
