The April 5 concert has been canceled.
Riccardo Muti leads the world premiere of Orpheus Undone by the CSO’s former Mead Composer-in-Residence Missy Mazzoli, whose works are celebrated for their raw emotional authenticity. Also on the program are works by two late-Romantic titans. Bruckner’s awe-inspiring Second Symphony is a perfect companion piece to Mahler’s intimate Rückert-Lieder, sung by Elīna Garanča, whose voice “is one in a million, allying grace and power to a commanding authority” (The Independent).
The Chicago Symphony Orchestra performance with Music Director Riccardo Muti scheduled for Tues., April 5, at 7:30 p.m. has been canceled. The decision to cancel the performance comes after a positive COVID-19 test result on April 4 for Maestro Muti, who has been testing daily in accordance with CSOA safety protocols.
Muti is experiencing mild symptoms and is in good spirits. He said, “I hope to be back as soon as possible and am looking forward to once again sharing music with the public in Chicago.”
Patrons with tickets have options, including exchanging tickets into future concerts, returning tickets and putting the money on account, or converting the value of tickets to a tax-deductible contribution.
