Important Update Regarding 2021 Performances

 

Dear Patrons and Friends,

In October, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale cancelled all live performances as originally scheduled through May 2021, including off-season performances and the February Gala. There is no indication that halls will reopen to capacity, we cannot bring guest artists to the U.S. from other countries because borders are closed, and most importantly, it remains unsafe for our musicians and audience.

We will continue to expand on our robust virtual offerings through our new 2021 digital platform PBO/VIRTUAL — with a variety of series offerings like Live from Amsterdam with Music Director Richard Egarr, Jews & Music (JAMOnline), our Salon Series featuring orchestra members and guest artists, What’s New and H.I.P. with Tarik and Rick, educational Musical Explorations, fun and delightful Musical Postcards; and we’ll be introducing new series as well. Finally, a wonderful surprise ‘un-gala’ in spring 2021 is in the works.

We’ll have news to share soon about the 2021/22 season, and until then, I thank you for your partnership and support.

With my best wishes,

Courtney Beck
Executive Director
