Conductor Miguel Harth-Bedoya has canceled his appearances tonight and Thursday at the Hollywood Bowl with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the orchestra announced Monday.
He will be replaced by Mischa Santora, associate conductor of the Minnesota Symphony.
Harth-Bedoya's wife, Mariza, who was expecting their third child, went into the hospital sooner than anticipated, and the former Philharmonic associate conductor, now music director of the Fort Worth Symphony, left Los Angeles to be with her.
Tonight, guitarists Sergio and Odair Assad are to perform. The program will also include works by Jimenez, Piazzolla, Revuelta and Galindo.
Thursday's program is to include music by Bizet, Dukas and Ravel, plus cellist Han-Na Chang playing Saint-Saens.
