The Vienna Philharmonic has today announced that it will resume live performances for live audiences at the Musikverein Concert Hall on June 5th.
In compliance with Austria's current COVID-19 social distancing regulations, the audience for all upcoming performances will be restricted to no more than 100 guests.
All members attending also will be required to wear a mask when entering the building - and concerts will be limited to a maximum of 70 minutes without an intermission to minimize crowd gatherings.
"We are very pleased that after a long break, our concert activity will gradually resume in June with individual concerts performed before small audiences in the Musikverein," a spokesperson for the ensemble has today said.
The orchestra's first concert will feature Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.27 and Beethoven’s Symphony No.5 - performed and led by soloist and conductor Daniel Barenboim.
