The Macao Orchestra, under the auspices of the Cultural Affairs Bureau (IC, from the Portuguese acronym), has decided to cancel the concert “Commemorating the 110th Anniversary of the première of Mahler’s work: The Song of the Earth – Macao Orchestra and Shanghai Philharmonic Orchestra”, originally scheduled for 20 November, due to the epidemic prevention and control measures in Mainland China and to the fact that some performers will not be able to visit Macao. However, the Macao Orchestra will present the concert “A Night of German and Austrian Serenades” on that day, offering a high quality performance for the public.
The concert “A Night of German and Austrian Serenades” will be held on 20 November, at 8pm, at the Macao Cultural Centre Grand Auditorium, featuring Brahms’ Serenade No. 1 in D Major for Nonet and Mozart’s Serenade in G Major, K. 525 “Eine kleine Nachtmusik”. Both pieces are well-known classics from the German-Austrian classical school of music, reflecting the meticulous musical skills of Brahms and Mozart. Admission to the concert will be processed with free tickets. Seating for the performance is not assigned. Tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis from 13 to 14 November by registration through the Macao Orchestra’s website at www.icm.gov.mo/om, “MacaoOrchestra” page on Facebook or the official WeChat “MacaoOrchestra”.
In addition, IC will arrange refunds for those who have purchased tickets for the concert “Commemorating the 110th Anniversary of the première of Mahler’s work: The Song of the Earth – Macao Orchestra and Shanghai Philharmonic Orchestra”. Spectators with tickets may contact the Macau Ticketing Network for refund procedures from 13 November to 12 December at different times.
IC will closely monitor the development of the pandemic, follow the relevant guidelines of the Health Bureau and implement appropriate measures for cultural activities, and would like to express its thanks to the members of the public for their understanding and co-operation.
