"Ensemble  intercontemporain  soloists are sad to announce that, due to the Coronavirus outbreak and the related travel restrictions, we are forced to renounce our Asian tour which would have taken us to Singapore for the first time, as part of the  Singapore International Festival of Arts. We very much hope that this first appearance, and first meeting with the Singapore audience, can be postponed to a date in the near future.  Thank you very much for your understanding.”
