It has been announced today that VC ‘Young Artist’ Simone Porter will replace Concertmaster, Timothy Lees in 2 upcoming performances of the Barber Violin Concerto – with conductor Louis Langrée and the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra.

Timothy was scheduled to perform as soloist, with the ensemble on February 19th and 20th at Cincinnati’s Music Hall – yet has been forced to withdraw from the concerts due to a ‘physical stress injury’.

The 19 year old Colburn School of Music student and 2015 Avery Fisher Prize recipient, was also last July invited to replace Hilary Hahn in 3 concerto performances – with conductor Andres Orozco-Estrada and the Houston Symphony Orchestra.

“I am so delighted to have been given this incredible opportunity … ” Simone has told The Violin Channel, ” … I am beyond excited to be collaborating with Maestro Langrée and the amazing Cincinnati Symphony next week – and I wish Timothy Lees the speediest of recoveries…”
