The Berlin Philharmonic has this week announced the cancellation of its 6-city US concert tour – scheduled to take place from the 7th to the 20th of November in Florida, Michigan, Illinois and New York.

This was set to be the first US tour for the ensemble’s recently appointed Chief Conductor, Kirill Petrenko.

“We are already in dialogue with the promoters to catch up on the concerts planned in Naples, Miami, Boston, Ann Arbor, Chicago and New York in the coming years …” Berlin Philharmonic General Manager Andrea Zietzschmann has this week said.

“At the moment, such a tour is unfortunately not feasible due to the current situation, and it would also be irresponsible to stick to the original plans, however much this decision hurts,” she has said.
