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 programme as soon as I am able.” Yuja Wang

Dear Yuja fans:

Unfortunately, the above statement from Yuja Wang confirms what we have been trying to avoid: her Vancouver concert is cancelled. This news is as disappointing to us as it is to you. You have been patient with us while we worked very hard over the past month — along with our colleagues in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Orange County who were also affected by the fact that Yuja was indisposed — to find a new date for her concert in the not-too-distant future. We were optimistic that we’d be able to reschedule her concert for September, however the statement indicates that it’s not going to happen anytime soon.

Accordingly, the Vancouver Recital Society and the Chan Centre will be issuing a full refund on the price of your ticket/s to the credit card used at the time of purchase.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support. The VRS has a proud history in this city and beyond, providing music lovers with superb concerts for over 39 years. Our track record for presenting outstanding artists has made us one of the most respected concert series on the continent. We’re deeply disappointed that we’ve been forced to cancel this concert. Thankfully, cancellations of this nature don’t occur very often, but when they do happen they come at a very real cost to us. Our patrons mean a great deal to this organization… we simply couldn’t do this without you!

Now, we look to the future and keep our fingers crossed for the day Yuja Wang returns to Vancouver.

Most sincerely,

Leila Getz, C.M., O.B.C., DFA
Founder & Artistic Director
