CARNEGIE HALL ANNOUNCES CANCELLATION OF
PIANIST MURRAY PERAHIA’S RECITAL ON MONDAY, APRIL 4
Carnegie Hall today announced that pianist Murray Perahia must regrettably cancel his solo recital in Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage scheduled for Monday, April 4. Since last week’s Carnegie Hall announcement, Mr. Perahia has re-considered and now feels it is not advisable to add additional concerts to his busy schedule, so as not to impair his long-term recovery from an earlier injury. This performance will not be rescheduled.
Ticket holders who purchased tickets for this performance through CarnegieCharge or carnegiehall.org will receive automatic refunds. Those who purchased tickets with cash should return them to the Carnegie Hall Box Office in person to receive a refund. Ticket holders with questions may contact CarnegieCharge at 212-247-7800.
