Concert status and limitation on number of guests to the concert hall – due to extension of State of Emergency (June 1 to June 20)

Japanese government has announced that the state of emergency be extended to June 20, 2021.

Concerts sponsored by the Sapporo Symphony Orchestra follow limitation of the entrance (i.e. less than 5,000 and less than 50% of hall capacity) and closing hour of the concert (by 9pm). We will thus carry out the concerts as originally planned.

Ticket sales may be stopped if the capacity limit exceeds 50%.

Those who have already purchased tickets can take the seats printed on the tickets.
