With Jordan Hall closed to the public because of cornavirus concerns, Boston Baroque reports it's postponing its March performances of Vivaldi’s "The Four Seasons" and "Gloria" to a to-be-determined later date and cancelling it April performances of Handel's "Ariodante."
In a statement, Boston Baroque Executive Director Jennifer Ritvo Hughes said:
In light of New England Conservatory's decision to close its campus to the public, and as the Governor of Massachusetts has declared a state of emergency throughout the Commonwealth, we feel this is the most prudent path forward, given the uncertain situation at hand and the limited options available to us. That said, the arts play an important role in times of challenge, and it is my hope that Boston Baroque - through our recordings and videos - will continue to be a source of inspiration and joy throughout the coming weeks and months, albeit in a different medium.
