To all customers who purchased tickets for Weekday Afternoon Concerts

***All Weekday Afternoon Concert ticket holders requested to confirm! (details below)***

We apologize for the inconvenience regarding our concert cancellations and postponements caused by the recent pandemic. These changes were in response to requests from the Cabinet Office and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government.

As we enter Step 3 of the Tokyo roadmap for mitigating the city's request for self-restraint (less than 1,000 people indoors and half the capacity) on June 19, we are now able to perform our Weekday Afternoon Concert from August.

We would like to thank you in advance for your understanding of the changes and the items listed below.

It is subject to change at the request of the Cabinet Office and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government. We will announce any changes as necessary.

For the August 4 concert, our Chief Conductor, Andrea Battistoni, who resides in Italy, will not be able to come to Japan because of the unpredictability of travel restrictions.

We have provided in the form your option to consider unspent tickets a donation toward TPOs ability to share your love for classical music.

Since late February, all our concerts have been either cancelled or postponed. As performance fees are almost all the source of our revenue, we are facing a survival crisis. Your passion for supporting the TPO and our dedicated musicians will make a huge difference.

For customers who purchased through a ticket agency, the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra will send you a letter with details.
