Rihab Chaieb Cancels Festival de Lanaudière Concert

By Francisco Salazar

Mezzo-soprano Rihab Chaieb has canceled her participation in the upcoming Rossinimania! concert at the Festival de Lanaudière.

The mezzo took to social media and said, “I am sad to say that due to health reasons, I have to withdraw from my much expected concert at @festivaldelanaudiere this weekend. I am devastated but I know this is the best recourse for me to get back on my feet swiftly. Hopefully, the talented Meagan Sill is taking over with force and might! Thank you, Meagan!”

She added, “Physical and mental health is paramount in this business and they often go together. I hope you’ll forgive me while I get some TLC for the next few days.”

Sill will join the Orchestre Métropolitain and conductor Ariane Matiakh. Soloists will also include Lawrence Brownlee and Michael Spyres in a program of Rossini works. The concert will be held on July 31.
