It has been announced today that American violinist, Anne Akiko Meyers has badly broken her right foot - and will perform in a plaster cast for the next 6-8 weeks.
The violinist was walking with her children, in Washington DC on Friday afternoon, when she slipped and rolled her ankle.
Youtube footage filmed on Friday evening at the Kennedy Center, in Washington has shown the happy-go-lucky soloist was brought on stage in a wheel chair to perform the Mason Bates Violin Concerto - with the National Symphony Orchestra.

"Travel, recordings, and concerts will be a little more challenging over the next few weeks, but I am so grateful nothing happened to my hands and wrists,” Anne Akiko has told The Violin Channel.
We wish her a speedy recovery.
