These events are CANCELLED
A statement from the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra:
APO musicians and staff were holding out hope that the ever-popular annual festive concerts for the community and families with young children would be able to go ahead, but unfortunately this is not possible.
APO Chief Executive Barbara Glaser says: “We are really disappointed to have to cancel our remaining 2021 concerts. Our Christmas concerts have a special place in our hearts, and we know our audiences love them too. However, the health and well-being of our audiences and everyone at the APO is paramount as we navigate through this current outbreak. The Government is still working through the most appropriate ways for events to happen safely, and we won’t have clarity on this in time to align with our planning timelines, therefore unfortunately our only option is to cancel.
“We urge everyone to get vaccinated. It is the best way to ensure concerts and events can take place again and the arts can thrive. We also want to thank everyone for the continued support APO has received during these extremely challenging times and we look forward to a fresh start in 2022.”
During this lockdown period the APO will be sharing special Encore Livestream performances online, in place of the usual Live Thursday evening concerts.
