Pianist Andre Watts — who was to have been the guest soloist at the Austin Symphony Orchestra’s season opening concert next weekend — has cancelled due to injury, symphony officials announced today.
ASO representatives said that Watts who suffers from tendenitis in both wrists, was cancelling.
Gustavo Romero will replace Watts and play the Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 3 that had been originally planned. Romero is on the faculty of the Univ. of North Texas.
Also on the program is “This Noble Company” by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Kevin Puts.
