Riccardo Muti has canceled his appearances in this week's Chicago Symphony Orchestra concerts due to being ill with the flu.
Edo de Waart will take over podium duties for this week's all-Beethoven program, which will be unchanged.
No announcement was made yet on whether the CSO music director will be well enough for the following week's program.
