CANCELLED // Joyce DiDonato: My Favourite Things
The Turku Music Festival is sad to announce that we are forced to cancel the concert by Joyce DiDonato and the Il Pomo d’Oro Baroque orchestra on 7 December. This is due to recommendations and orders issued by the authorities because of the worsening coronavirus situation in Southwest Finland. We will be contacting all ticket holders.
All tickets purchased for the Joyce DiDonato concert will be refunded at the ticket price, but please note that the service and delivery fees will not be refunded. Lippupiste will contact all customers.
If you hold a ticket for the Joyce DiDonato concert on 7 December and/or the recital by Karita Mattila and Iiro Rantala on 16 or 22 December, instead of a cash refund you may also exchange it/them for a Turku Music Festival gift voucher. Refund gift vouchers will be accepted as payment at Lippupiste full-service outlets (not at R-kiosks or in the online shop) up until 31 December 2021. For a list of full-service outlets, visit the Lippupiste website: https://www.lippu.fi/help/outlets/

At Turku Concert Hall, friends of Baroque music will be treated to a concert by American mezzosoprano Joyce DiDonato and the Baroque orchestra Il Pomo d’Oro. The concert will include some of her favourite arias. DiDinato is one of the brightest stars on the opera firmament. In February, she appeared in the title role of Handel’s Agrippina at the Metropolitan Opera in New York.
2 h 15 min, 1 interval
As at the concerts of the Turku Philharmonic, attendance at Turku Concert Hall will be limited to just over 300, taking safe distancing into account. Concert guests will be directed into the hall so that distancing is observed.
The Turku Music Festival requires that concert guests wear face masks. Our employees will be wearing face masks. We will be passing out face masks to audience members at the door and require that people will use them if they have not brought one of their own.
Please stay home if you have any symptoms. Due to the coronavirus situation you can cancel your tickets as late as 7 hours before the performance starts. Their value will be credited to a voucher to the Turku Music Festival and the voucher will be valid up until 31 Dec 2021. If you have symptoms, send an e-mail to Turku Concert Hall Sales Service at .
