Björk and Iceland Airwaves have made the decision to move the first three shows in the concert series Live from Reykjavík to September after recent announcement that the government has re-imposed temporary tougher restrictions on mass gatherings.
The concert series was planned to take place on August 9th, 15th, 23rd and 29th. The August 29th concert remains in place but the new dates for the other shows are September 13th, September 19th and September 28th. This means that the last show becomes the first show and the running order of the moved shows also changes.
So here is the new order and dates of all four shows:
- Saturday August 29th at 17:00 – With 15 piece chamber ensemble from Iceland Symphony Orchestra, conductor: Bjarni Frímann Bjarnason – NO CHANGE
- Sunday September 13th at 17:00 – With brass from the Iceland Symphony Orchestra and flute septet Viibra, Katie Buckley harp, Jónas Sen pianó – FORMERLY AUGUST 23rd
- Saturday September 19th at 17:00 – with Hamrahlíð choir, Þorgerður Ingólfsdóttir, Conductor – FORMERLY AUGUST 9th
- Monday September 28th at 20:00 – Strings from Iceland Symphony Orchestra, Katie Buckley harp, Bjarni Frímann Bjarnason, Conductor – FORMERLY AUGUST 15TH
Although we were very much looking forward to coming together on August 9th but it is of the utmost importance that we ensure the health and safety of our guests and staff and that all rules are followed. We are committed to doing our part in stopping the spread of the virus and as such we will continue to monitor closely the recommendations of the authorities.
All tickets are still valid for the new date for each show. If however the new date is not convenient for ticket holders, they can claim a refund by e-mailing Harpa within 7 days from today, or August 14th the latest, at midasala@harpa. Please note that all the shows were sold out so unfortunately there is no flexibility right now in moving people between shows, so as things stand right now we cannot grant any such requests.
We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause and hope to see you all when it is safe to do so.
Many thanks in advance for your patience and understanding.
