Carnegie Hall Postpones Philadelphia Orchestra’s Concert

By Francisco Salazar

The Philadelphia Orchestra has postponed its Jan. 11 performance at Carnegie Hall.

The theater noted that due to COVID-related concerns with the orchestra and a large number of singers, the concert will be rescheduled for Feb. 21, 2022. Tickets for the original date will still be honored.

The Philadelphia Orchestra was set to be led by Yannick Nézet-Séguin with soloists Golda Schultz, Emily D’Angelo, Rolando Villazón, and Ryan Speedo Green. The concert was set to include Beethoven’s Symphony No. 1 and 9 and Gabriela Lena Frank’s “Pachamama Meets an Ode.”

This is the latest concert postponed at Carnegie Hall. Last month the Masterwork Chorus & Orchestra canceled its Dec. 23 concert due to COVID-19.

New York is currently undergoing a record-breaking COVD-19 outbreak recently reporting 53,593 new cases.
