Dear friends and music lovers,
The Dutch government made a decision in the battle with Coronavirus, which brings us to cancel the 31st edition of Zeist Music Days Festival this summer. This is a very sad and unfortunate situation, but it will help all of us to remain safe and healthy.
This year we all face a global pandemic which quickly paralyzed the whole world. The performing art, as many other sides of our life, have been heavily damaged. We are all going into a the new era of digital music media, but for sure this cannot replace the atmosphere and experience of live performances where the audience becomes an integral part of the music making.
In a positive mood the preparations for the 2021 festival program will start these days, which will definitely include some of the ensembles and artists who would have joined us this summer. We will post some recordings on the festival’s website from time to time, specially made for you so we keep connected in the atmosphere of the music making. This is the opportunity to wish you, our dedicated audience, guest artists, teachers and students a healthy and optimistic summer time.
Alexander Pavlovsky, artistic Director
