Cancellation of the European Concert and tour in Spain

01 Mar 2021

Due to the current pandemic situation and the associated travel restrictions, the Berliner Philharmoniker and their chief conductor Kirill Petrenko have unfortunately had to cancel the European concert on 1 May in the Sagrada Família in Barcelona. The subsequent tour of Spain, which would have also taken the orchestra to Madrid, is also affected by the cancellation. The Berliner Philharmoniker and the organisers in Spain are working to make up for the concerts in one of the next seasons.

A search is currently under way for a replacement venue in the Berlin/Brandenburg region for the traditional European Concert on 1 May.
