    URGENT: The MET Chamber Ensemble Concert on Sunday, Jan 30 Has Been Cancelled

     

    CARNEGIE HALL CONCERT BY JAMES LEVINE AND
    THE MET CHAMBER ENSEMBLE ON
    SUNDAY, JANUARY 30 HAS BEEN CANCELLED
     

     

    Carnegie Hall today announced that conductor James Levine and The MET Chamber Ensemble must regrettably cancel their concert scheduled for this Sunday, January 30 at 5:00 p.m. in Weill Recital Hall. Maestro Levine, who earlier this week was forced to cancel a performance of Verdi's Simon Boccanegra at The Metropolitan Opera due to a viral infection, was unable to rehearse this week for Sunday’s MET Chamber Ensemble concert. The demanding program, which included pieces by Leon Kirchner, George Perle, Lukas Foss, and Johannes Brahms, required considerable rehearsal time, unavailable due to Mr. Levine's illness.

    Mr. Levine said, "This is a program of music that is particularly close to my heart, and while I deeply regret not being able to prepare it properly for this Sunday, I look forward to rescheduling it as soon as possible."

    Mr. Levine is still scheduled to conduct tonight’s performance of Verdi’s Simon Boccanegra at The Metropolitan Opera.

Those who purchased tickets at the Carnegie Hall Box Office should return them to the box office in person to receive a refund or to exchange for tickets to another Carnegie Hall performance.
