3959 people registered for 1850 passes to “George Enescu” International Festival

On Monday, 26 November, at 12 p.m., in the VIP Hall of the Romanian Athenaeum, it took place the drawing for the pass lottery to the 2019 George Enescu International Festival (31 August – 22 September 2019, Bucharest, Romania). The drawing was organised by Eventim and broadcasted live on www.festivalenescu.ro, the YouTube channel and the Facebook page of the Festival, with a total number of 1,850 passes going on sale.

The drawing took place in the presence of a committee comprising: Sergiu Crețu, attorney-at-law with Ţucă Zbârcea & Asociații, Mihai Constantinescu, executive director of the “George Enescu” International Festival and Ionuț Buha, Eventim general manager.

The procedure entailed the use of random.org to select a list of persons for each series of concerts and each category of tickets available. Thus, in the first round, 221 people registered for the 60 available individual type A passes in the Great Concerts of the World series, category I, and in the second round, for the family pass category, 762 people registered for the 125 available passes. The procedure was repeated for each series of concerts and each price category. A total number of 20 drawings took place.

To comply with data protection rules, the lists of participants included each participant’s registration number.

The total number of music lovers who registered for the pass lottery to the 2019 “George Enescu” International Festival was 3959 people, as follows: 3505 people for 1200 passes in the Great Orchestras of the World series, 1687 people for 180 passes in the Recitals and Chamber Music series, and 1080 people for 220 passes in the By Midnight Concerts series. For the Music of the 21st Century series, all registered participants, 270 people, will get the chance to buy passes. (For the full table, see the end of the text.)
