American Symphony Orchestra Postpones U.S. Premiere of ‘At the Reading of a Psalm’

By David Salazar

The American Symphony Orchestra has postponed its upcoming performance on Jan. 28, 2022 due to ongoing concerns over COVID-19.

The program was set to be led by Leon Botstein and would have featured the U.S. premiere of Sergei Taneyev’s “At the Reading of a Psalm.”

The scheduled soloists for the performance were soprano Wendy Bryn Harmer, a graduate of the Opera’s Lindemann Young Artist Development Program; mezzo-soprano Eve Gigliotti who will be heard in “The Rake’s Progress” and “Rigoletto” at the Met this season; tenor Joshua Blue who made his 2021 Met debut in the Grammy Award-winning production of “Porgy and Bess;” and bass Harold Wilson who will also be performing in the Met’s “The Rake’s Progress,” as well as “Boris Godunov.”

The new date has yet to be announced. Ticket holders will receive automatic refunds to their original form of payment.
