News on coronavirus
In contrast to the events currently affected by cancellations due to the SARS CoV-2 (Covid-19) coronavirus, the “Rarities of Piano Music” festival will not take place in the next few weeks, but in August. However, the team of the Nordfriesland Foundation is monitoring the development of the situation very carefully. If measures to reduce the risk of infection are necessary in summer or if the festival is canceled due to legal regulations, we will inform the concert visitors in advance.
