Your 20/21 Subscription
thank you very much for your support in the past weeks and months. Above all, your accommodating understanding for the successive concert cancellations of the 19/20 season has been a great help to us in coping with the current situation.
When we presented our new season 20/21 to you in mid-April, we were looking forward to the second half of the year with confidence. Given the situation at that time it was important for us to send a positive message to our guests and friends. We therefore regret all the more that we have to inform you today that due to the restrictions expected for the autumn to contain the further spread of the coronavirus, our symphony concerts in the Philharmonie in September and October will have to take place outside the subscription series (A, B, C, Classic Now). We hope to be able to begin with the regular subscriptions again in November. Your series would then be reduced accordingly by the suspended concert. For the chamber music series, the Casual Concert series and the 'Notturno' series there are no changes (as of July 13th).
As of today, we are assuming that we will be able to play in the Philharmonie again in the autumn – but only under special conditions that have yet to be defined in detail.
We expect that we will have to manage with considerably fewer seats in the audience due to distance regulations and that we will therefore not be able to guarantee you your personal regular seat as a subscriber. In addition, it is also possible, that we will have to adapt our concert programmes to the rules to be announced. This may result in possible programme changes. Please be assured, however, that we make every effort to keep interference with the published programmes to a minimum.
Since our subscribers are among our most loyal guests, we would like to offer you tickets at exclusive special conditions for the concerts in September and October with a potentially highly reduced number of available seats. We will provide you with more detailed information on this and the current programme in the upcoming weeks.
We kindly ask you to return your subscription tickets for concerts in the Philharmonie, that you may have already received, to our Visitor's Service/Ticket Offiec by post, quoting your IBAN number for the refund, or to return them in person. We very much apologize for this inconvenience.
In these still unusual and very serious times, we ask for your understanding that the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin also has to "drive by sight", which leads to this considerable restriction of our offer to you. Let us hope for better times soon. We wish you, your relatives and your family good health and look forward to seeing you again soon in one of our concerts.
Your Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin
