Claycomb Replaces Cabell in Carnegie’s Bel Canto Concert

Carnegie Hall has just issued the following statement regarding a last minute cast change for the upcoming bel canto concert featuring Joyce DiDonato and The Philadelphia Orchestra that WFMT will broadcast LIVE on Wednesday, March 18, 2015 at 6:55 pm Central:

“Please note that soprano Nicole Cabell has withdrawn from this performance due to illness. Laura Claycomb has graciously agreed to perform in her place.

A highlight of Joyce DiDonato’s Perspectives series is this celebration of music from the bel canto era. Curated by the mezzo-soprano, this evening of arias, ensembles, and orchestral selections ranges from Rossini and Bellini to surprising gems by lesser-known composers of the time. Joining The Philadelphia Orchestra is a lineup of well-known bel canto stars: soprano Laura Claycomb, tenor Lawrence Brownlee, and conductor Maurizio Benini.”
