On the advice of her physician, violinist Hilary Hahn has withdrawn from this weekend’s Cleveland Orchestra concerts with guest conductor James Gaffigan. She will be replaced by soprano Yulia van Doren, and Johann Sebastian Bach’s solo cantata, Mein Herze schwimmt im Blut, BWV 199 will be substituted for the previously-scheduled Bach violin concertos. The program also includes Johannes Brahms’s Schicksalslied with the Cleveland Orchestra Chorus, and Felix Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 5, “Reformation.”
Jung-Min Amy Lee, associate concertmaster of The Cleveland Orchestra, will replace Hahn for the masterclass with students from area colleges and universities in Reinberger Chamber Hall on Tuesday, October 21 at 4:00 pm. The event is free and open to music teachers, students and parents, but tickets are required.
