KANSAS CITY, Mo. – January 30, 2024 — The Kansas City Symphony regrettably announced today that violinist Pamela Frank, scheduled to perform Beethoven’s Violin Concerto with the orchestra this weekend, cannot travel to Kansas City as she has tested positive for an acute COVID-19 infection.

The Kansas City Symphony is changing the program slightly and will replace Beethoven’s Violin Concerto with Beethoven’s beloved Symphony No. 5. The concerts will continue to feature Kansas City composer Shelley Washington’s sonic piece Both, co-commissioned by the Symphony.

We wish Ms. Frank a speedy recovery and look forward to making music with her in the future.
