Jong Metropole Summer Tour cancelled
30 april 2020
With pain in our hearts, we have decided to cancel the upcoming Jong Metropole Summer Tour. The Dutch Government's press conference on Tuesday 21 April 2020 about the COVID-19 measures has made it clear that the Jong Metropole Summer Tour 2020 will not be feasible. Even if, as a result of changing measures, the Summer Tour could take place, we would not be able to organise the tour in accordance with our own quality standards. Also, at this moment we have insufficient guarantees that we can offer safe participation for our musicians as well as for the public. We understand that this decision is a considerable disappointment for both the interested musicians and the public. However, we hope that you can understand our choice to put health and safety first.
Despite our disappointment that the summer activities cannot take place, we will work hard after the summer to organise a beautiful next Jong Metropole season. For now, we expect to hold auditions in the autumn for the Spring Tour in March 2021 and the Summer Tour 2021. Until then, we will do our best to share good memories, great music and important news with you via our website, Facebook and Instagram. So keep an eye on us!
We wish our musicians, coaches, tutors, fans and everyone else who makes Jong Metropole possible good health and sufficient resilience to endure the current situation. We continue to prepare ourselves for better times and will get back to you soon!
