The first Animato Foundation Chamber Orchestra Tour to go live – Following our „predecessor“ of an Animato Foundation Chamber Orchestra – the Davos Festival music units in 2014 – 2017 (picture) – our first Animato Foundation Chamber Orchestra composed by 35 members under the baton of Kevin Griffiths and with Claire Huangci as pianist will give concerts in Stift Melk, Vienna and St. Pölten followed by concert presentations in Prague and Berlin.
All hopes are now focussed on the actually liberal Covid-19 regime to remain until we shall have finished our Animato Foundation Chamber Orchestra Tour 2021.
Animato Music Presence at „SwissFoundations Symposium 2021“ – As a „premiere“ for Animato Foundation our foundation was invited to take over the background music part during the leading „SwissFoundations Symposium 2021“ which was hold online on the 1st and 2nd June 2021. 14 music pieces played by the respective Animato Foundation Orchestras in public concerts europeanwide between 2006 and 2018 were selected and presented to more than 200 participants of the „SwissFoundations Symposium 2021“.
Looking at Covid-19
How to protect our young musicians against Covid-19 on the Animato Chamber Orchestra Tour – While living and travelling during the Animato Academy & Chamber Concert Tour in and through Austria, Czech Republic and Germany and in view of a possible arriving of a 4th wave of Covid -19 there is a considerable risk that a Covid-19 incident or a local lockdown may stop our vaccinated Animato orchestra and may terminate the concert tournee prematurely. As a further protection Animato shall – if possible- engage a medical person familiar with Covid 19 who will be part of the Animato accompanying team.
