AEC Newsletter December 2020
Dear friends and colleagues,
This strange year is coming to an end. We light our candles with the hope of a new and better year ahead.
We receive good news from Russia and the United Kingdom: the COVID-19 vaccination has started. We look forward to opening our doors, coming together as musicians and listeners in a vibrant music and art life again.
COVID-19 has changed the world in a matter of months. As AEC members, we work continuously to respond to change and to further develop our contribution to society, in the coming year, in coming years.
My colleagues in the AEC Council and the entire AEC Office Team wish you all peaceful holidays and a brighter New Year!
Eirik Birkeland
AEC President
