Salzburg Mozarteum Orchestra cancels Korea visit

Friday, 25 March 2011

The Salzburg Mozarteum Orchestra has cancelled a visit to South Korea amid concerns over the radiation risk from Japan. The orchestra was due to give two concerts at the Tongyeong International Music Festival, including tomorrow's opening concert. Despite assurances from Korean authorities that radiation from Japan would not affect Korea, the orchestra announced midweek that it was pulling out of the festival. A spokesperson for the orchestra cited the changing situation in Japan and Austrian memories of the 1986 Chernobyl disaster's radiation impact as reasons behind the cancellation.
