17/03/2020 - The European Union Youth Orchestra (EUYO) is announcing today the cancellation of its entire forthcoming Spring Tour due to the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak. Following on from the decision announced on 9th March to cancel the Italian part of the tour, the decision to cancel the remaining projects in Grafenegg and Vienna have been taken in the light of the current situation in Austria and Europe, together with the current advice of the Austrian authorities, and in agreement with the EUYO’s Austrian partners.
The EUYO is deeply sorry to have to cancel the entire touring period, but has been obliged to do so as the current situation has rendered the project unsafe, and contrary to current travel and event restrictions. The safety of the Orchestra’s members, tutors, artists and management remains the EUYO’s first priority. Therefore the EUYO is regularly monitoring the situation regarding future projects in order to continue to be able to respond promptly and appropriately.
