It is with immense regret that Jersey Symphony has decided to postpone its 2021 Christmas Concert until Christmas 2022.
Over the past two days, the Omicron variant raging in the UK has caused ten of the thirty visiting players to have to withdraw from joining us on 19 December with others feeling very concerned about the whole situation. Given the rapid spread of the variant we expect the problem to get worse rather than better and thinking of our own local population’s safety we must reluctantly postpone the very exciting ‘Christmas with a Latin American Twist’ programme devised by guest conductor Natalia Luis-Bassa until 18 December 2022.
Ticket purchasers will be contacted and reimbursed as quickly as possible. Postponing the concert just five days before it was due to take place is a devastating blow for us. We thank everyone for all their efforts in preparing for the concert and in particular the hosts of the visiting musicians who were prepared to open their homes to the visiting players in what are exceptional times.
