The 71-year-old also will not attend a Monday rehearsal of the Festival Orchestra, which includes Chicago-area high school students and members of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago. Conductor Miguel Harth-Bedoya of the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra will replace him at the event.

This is the second time Muti has missed symphony performances. In February 2011, he was hospitalized in Chicago after fainting during a rehearsal and suffering jaw and facial fractures.
