The City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, in Birmingham, England, has this week announced it will offer 5,000 free tickets to National Health Service workers for future concerts - once they resume following the Coronavirus pandemic.
The orchestra has launched the initiative as a way of thanking health service workers for their efforts during this difficult time.
"We know that in these uncertain times music is bringing many people comfort, joy and solace ... while we’re doing everything we can to keep music alive through online and digital work, we can’t wait to get back to performing for our live audiences once again here in Birmingham ..." Orchestra Chief Executive Stephen Maddock has this week said.
"And when we do, we would like to say a huge thank you to NHS workers by offering them tickets to the next concerts in our centenary season and beyond ... we hope that they will be able to join us to celebrate their incredible work,’ he has said.
Any NHS workers can register their interest now on the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra website.
