Guest violinist Hilary Hahn has canceled her appearances at the San Diego Symphony on season opening weekend Oct. 10-12 due to an injury.

“With great regret, Hilary Hahn has canceled her concerts for the coming month on the advice of her physician. These withdrawals are crucial to allow her to recover fully from a muscle strain. Ms. Hahn will resume her performance later in the fall,” a statement from Hahn’s management read.

The Symphony’s concertmaster, Jeff Thayer, will take over the performance of Max Bruch’s “Scottish Fantasy.”

Other works scheduled for the Symphony’s opening weekend include “An Orkney Wedding, With Sunrise” by Maxwell Davies and “Symphony No. 3, Scottish” by Felix Medelssohn. Both will be conducted by music director Jahia Ling.

Symphony patrons who currently have tickets to Hahn’s performances are still welcome to attend the opening weekend, or exchange them for other performances.
