Carnegie Hall today announced that Michael Tilson Thomas replaces conductor James Levine on The MET Orchestra program for June 5, 2018 at 8:00 p.m. in Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage. The program will now include Carl Ruggles's Evocations in place of the previously announced world premiere of Eros and Nemesis by Charles Wuorinen. The remainder of the program remains the same with soprano Pretty Yende singing Mozart's Exsultate, jubilate and Mahler's Symphony No. 4 in G Major. This concert marks Maestro Tilson Thomas's first performance leading The MET Orchestra.

The June 5 concert concludes a trio of performances by The MET Orchestra in spring 2018. On Friday May 18, Mirga Gražinyt?-Tyla leads the orchestra in her Carnegie Hall debut with a program to include Debussy's Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune, Mussorgsky's Songs and Dances of Death with mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili, and Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 4. Gianandrea Noseda takes to the podium on Wednesday, May 30, conducting Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 5, "Turkish," featuring James Ehnes as soloist and Mahler's Symphony No. 5.
