STOP PRESS – Fri/Sat DC Concerts cancelled, extra date tonight
21 January, 2016
With great regret, it has been necessary to cancel Friday and Saturday’s joint concerts with the Folger Consort in Washington DC. The venue has taken the decision to close its facilities due to the impending severe winter storm in the DC area.
However, an extra performance has been arranged this evening (Thursday 21st January).
Here is the full text of the Folger Consort’s cancellation message:
Due to blizzard warnings, Washington National Cathedral has made the decision to close its facilities this weekend. Therefore, we are regrettably cancelling our performances of The Wonder of Will: Early and New Music Celebrating Shakespeare at the Cathedral this Friday and Saturday.
Please join us this evening at the Cathedral for our special concert at 7:30pm. In addition to having the opportunity to hear this extraordinary music from London’s Stile Antico, Arcadia Viols, and Folger Consort, the value of your ticket will also be recognized as a donation to Folger Consort due to the cancellation, as we cannot guarantee you the specific seat you purchased. Rather we will endeavor to seat you in the same section location. Parking is available in the lot and on the grounds at the Cathedral, as usual, and the doors will open at 7:00pm.
Our joint concert in New York City on Sunday afternoon is expected to go ahead as scheduled.
We sincerely apologise for any disappointment caused and hope to back in the DC area soon.
