Carnegie Hall Reschedules Orchestra of St. Luke's Show To June 1 After Hurricane Sandy
Hurricane Sandy halted almost everything when it touched down in October in the New York inflicting billions of dollars in damages.
As millions continue the rebuilding process, shows and plays scramble to reschedule performances canceled due to the massive storm.
The Orchestra of St. Luke's was one of the major acts to be cancelled this classical music season at Carnegie Hall. Lang Lang and Friends and The Mariinsky Orchestra were among the other groups distributed by the storm.
Orchestra of St. Luke's was scheduled to perform at Carnegie Hall on Nov. 1 at the Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage. The cancelled performance has been rescheduled to June 1. Tickets for the Nov. 1 performance will be honored for the new date.
The new date will see conductor Nicholas McGegan take the helm as he guides St. Luke's through a rendition of Mozart's "Ballet Music from Idomeneo, K. 367" followed by the works of Hadyn, namely his "Cello Concerto No. 2in D Major, Hob. VIIb:2," and his "Symphony No. 99 in E-flat Major, Hob. I:99." The orchestra will end the night with Mozart's "Symphony No. 29 in A Major, K. 201/186a."
The ensemble and McGegan will be joined by cellist Steven Isserlis.
