Nézet-Séguin Is Going to Miss His Big Carnegie Hall Moment—Again

Sinus problems will prevent Philadelphia Orchestra conductor from making New York appointment.

The Inquirer reports that Yannick Nézet-Séguin will be skipping this week’s Philadelphia Orchestra concerts—both here and at Carnegie Hall in New York—with a sinus problem.

An orchestra spokeswoman said Nézet-Séguin was suffering from sinus problems and had been told by his doctor not to travel. This is the second Carnegie Hall date he will have missed this season; the first was the hall’s season-opening gala last month, cancelled due to a stagehands’ strike.

Michael Tilson Thomas, director of the San Francisco Symphony, will guest-conduct in his place.
