Update on the current situationshare on facebook
In accordance with the Austrian government’s measures of 6th April 2020 to prevent the spread of the Corona crisis, which prohibit all events up to the end of June 2020, we have regretfully been obliged to cancel all the concerts in the recreation and recreationBarock series.
The concerts cannot be postponed to next season as the programme for this has already been planned. However, it will be possible to use some of the programme ideas in 2021/22, the season after next.
The presentation of the upcoming recreation season 2020/21 is planned for May. We would like to invite those with subscriptions and tickets for the current season to donate what they have paid to the Artist Relief Fund, if at all possible. Otherwise, please consider accepting credit rather than asking for a refund, as this would relieve us of a significant administrative burden.
The 2020 styriarte festival “Gifts of the Night” will not fall victim to the current crisis altogether. There can of course be no events in the conventional sense before the end of June 2020, and it is likely that even after that date it will only be possible to open the festival gradually. However, we plan to find other ways to bring our art to our audience and we will try to put on as many of our wonderful performances as possible. But we need time. Please give us until the end of May. We will then suggest an amended programme for the 2020 styriarte festival “Gifts of the Night”, presenting as much as possible of the original in new formats, while observing government regulations to stop the spread of the virus.
The cost of tickets for events up to the end of June 2020 will, of course, be refunded on demand to those who prefer not to wait to consider the amended programme.
Stay healthy and thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
Did you buy tickets for a PSALM or recreation concert?
If so, you now have the following options:
- Allow us to transfer the sum you paid for your tickets to the Relief Fund which we have just set up. This will provide financial support for those of our musicians whose livelihood has been affected by the crisis.
- Accept credit in exchange for your styriarte tickets. The credit will be added to your customer account and can be used for all styriarte events but also for products from our shop (books, CDs, festival editions, umbrellas, chocolate). This simple and practical solution would save us a great deal of administrative work at an already very difficult time.
- Send us your bank details (IBAN) and we will refund the cost of the tickets.
Our ticket centre at Palais Attems is closed until further notice. If possible, please contact us by email. For urgent enquiries, please call 0650 8010720.
