The Dutch government has decided to ban all meetings until 1 June. As a result, the organization of the St. Matthew Passion concert in Edam, unfortunately had to cancel the performance on April 10. Also, this special concert cannot be postponed to a later date this year.
All performances of concerts in The Netherlands have been cancelled, thus all Passion concerts too.
Our concern is with our colleagues who often lose half an annual income due to the cancellation of the passion concerts. In many cases they are not compensated for this by the Dutch government. This is contrary to what is claimed.
