Oakland Symphony Change of Program

I can't find this on the Oakland Symphony web site, but a well-informed person told me earlier today that the big work on the program, Michael Tippett's A Child of Our Time, has been cancelled owing to COVID cases in the chorus. It has been replaced by Elgar's Enigma Variations. Still on the program are Cindy McTee's Circuits and Alan Hovhaness's  Symphony No. 2 , Mysterious Mountain.

They didn't inform ticket holders of this. It's very difficult for me to get to Oakland for an evening concert, but B. and I went for the Tippett and didn't find out about the change until literally the moment we sat down in our seats and looked at the program.
Unfortunately I didn't happen to read your blog at the end of this week either. Changing a program item is something that happens, you can't complain about circumstances. But not informing the ticket holders ... that's unforgivable.
