Sapporo Symphony Orchestra would like to express our deepest condolence to those who suffered from COVID-19. We wish earliest recovery who are now fighting this disease.
Sapporo Symphony Orchestra has been cancelling the concert because of COVID-19 since end of February. A year has passed since then, and with your kind and warm support, we have restarted our concerts from August 1, 2020.
With your donation, subsidies and cutting salaries and taking actions on diminishing expenditures, our fiscal 2020 income/expenditure is to become surplus. (After approval of our 2020 Income/Expenditure by the Councilor Meeting planned to be held in June, details on this will be uploaded on our website.）。
On the other hand, COVID-19 cannot be ignored in the fiscal 2021. There are concerts being cancelled because of this and the conditions around us is not so optimistic.
We thank for your continuous support.
