No Yuja

I did not report about this at the time, but a few months ago, Yuja Wang cancelled several west coast recitals. Her plans then were to reschedule the recitals, but now comes the announcement that she is unable to do so. The two press releases I have so quote her as follows:
I have been working hard to find a date in the next few months to play my postponed recitals in Vancouver, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Costa Mesa but I’m sorry to tell my fans that it is simply impossible. I have been given strict instructions by my doctors that I’m trying very hard to follow to ensure that I remain healthy. I thank you all for your support and kindness and I am already working on returning to you all with a recital program as soon as I am able.
I've heard from SF and LA; I'm not on the press mailing lists for the other venues.
