Breaking: Chicago calls off Muti’s 80th birthday tourmain
The Chicago Symphony will not be appearing at Salzburg or other European festivals this summer ‘due to ongoing health and safety concerns and potential travel and performance restrictions related to the Covid-19 pandemic.’
The statement continues:
“International touring remains a top priority for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and music director Riccardo Muti. We look forward to serving as Chicago’s cultural ambassador and performing for international audiences again in the future, once health and safety restrictions enable us to do so,” says CSOA President Jeff Alexander.
