The Dutch conductor Jaap Van Zweden was meant to be celebrating his 60th birthday next month with the Dallas Symphony, which once paid him $5 million in a single year.
Dallas has now cancelled those concerts due to Covid.
The New York Philharmonic, where Jaap is now music director, is out of action until September 2021 at the earliest.
Jaap was last seen conducting in Hong Kong.
Probably best to send those birthday cards to Holland.
