Kahane cancels Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra appearances due to illness

Posted on: December 3, 2010

In Friday’s (12/3) Los Angeles Times, David Ng writes, “The Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra has announced that conductor Jeffrey Kahane has had to withdraw from his December concerts with the group due to his continued recuperation from an extended illness. In September, Kahane canceled his season-opening appearances with the orchestra as a result of a bout with mononucleosis, according to the organization. Pianist Anne-Marie McDermott is scheduled to replace Kahane for the Baroque Conversations series concert Dec. 9 at Zipper Concert Hall. Michael Stern, music director of the Kansas City Symphony (and Isaac Stern’s son), will take the podium Dec. 11 at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, and Dec. 12 at UCLA’s Royce Hall. Kahane has served as music director of the L.A. Chamber Orchestra for 14 seasons.”
