Bach Musica NZ concert – A French Christmas on Sunday 5 December 2021 has been cancelled.
A statement from Bach Musica NZ:
We are saddened to announce that we will not be able to perform this concert due to Force Majeure (Delta outbreak). Unfortunately, with the current restrictions in Auckland we are unable to meet to rehearse, and looking ahead we cannot see a situation this year where we will be able to schedule concerts and ensure the safety of our performers or our audience.
Although we are incredibly disappointed not to be able to finish the year with this wonderful concert, we wanted to give you, our audience, clarity as soon as possible. It is important that we all work together to support our community at this time, and to put New Zealanders’ health and wellbeing first.
We will of course schedule these beautiful works again at some later date, and we will be back to making music that touches the soul as soon as we can.
All tickets will be refunded automatically, there is nothing to do on your part. Please allow 10 – 14 working days for your refund to be processed. If your tickets were purchased from a Ticketmaster outlet, you will need to contact the Customer Service Team at Ticketmaster here and follow the instructions.
