THE third time is not the charm for Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra fans.
Chinese classical pianist Yuja Wang has cancelled her debut with the WSO, scheduled for opening weekend of its 65th season.
Wang needed to cut back her performances due to a hand injury, according to a news release. This is the third time the pianist, who has appeared with the world's top orchestras, has cancelled with the WSO.
In Wang's place, Russian-born pianist Natasha Paremski will play Tchaikovsky: Piano Concerto No. 1 on opening weekend, Sept. 21 and 22.
Meanwhile, Winnipeg avant garde new music ensemble GroundSwell has postponed its Rebirth concert, scheduled for Sept. 15 at the Winnipeg Art Gallery, due to a medical emergency.
