Announcing change of conductor for the January 2014 subscription concerts

We respectfully inform our audience

Ms. Alondra de la Parra, conductor originally scheduled to perform our January 2014 subscription concerts, has become unavailable to come to Japan due to her pregnancy due in March, 2014, and her doctor’s advice against a long distance trip. In her place, Mr. Andrea Battistoni, with whom we had a wonderful collaboration in our May subscription concerts, will conduct the concerts. The program will remain otherwise unchanged.
Thank you for your understanding.
