Dear EPTA presidents,
Unfortunately the Corona crisis left us no other choice but to postpone the 42. International EPTA Conference. We are very lucky that the Beethovenhaus in Bonn had a time slot available in autmn, so we have now postponed the conference to the following dates:
Friday (late morning) 30th October
Sunday (afternoon, approx. 16h) 1st November
We would be very happy if you could all join us on this new date!
Despite the slightly different timing (without Thursday afternoon but slightly longer on Sunday) we will be able to offer the programme that has been annouced earlier, of course in detail depending on the availability of the booked presenters. All presenters will be informed separately with some additional information.
We hope that all those who already booked their flights will be able to cancel / postpone them without great problems. Given the official travel restrictions for many countries, cancellations should be accepted in this particular situation and many flights will be cancelled anyway. If you need a written proof about the cancellation of our conference beyond this email and and beyond the information published on our homepage, please let us know.
These are difficult times for all of us but we believe that there is a strong solidarity between musicians and particularly within the international EPTA family, so we will all help each other to overcome this situation.
Kind regards on behalf of the whole team of EPTA Germany,
Sigrid Naumann, secretary
Dr. Rainer Lorenz, treasurer
Heribert Koch EPTA European President 2019/20
