Żółtowski To Conduct With Left Hand
ONEONTA – The show must go on.
Walking back from his interview with the Catskill Symphony Orchestra board, Maciej Żółtowski, the final of the three contenders for the music director of the CSO, slipped on the ice on the SUNY Oneonta campus and dislocated his right elbow, according to Laurie Zimniewicz, chair of the search committee.
An EMT assisted Żółtowski back to the Red Dragon Building, and an ambulance was called.
Trying to assist Żółtowski, CSO Executive Director Thomas Wolfe fell on the stairs and dislocated his right shoulder, Zimniewicz said. A second ambulance was called and both were treated at the Fox Hospital emergency room.
“Maciej is resigned to conducting with his left hand only,” she said. “And he told me a story of Leonard Bernstein conducting Haydn with only his face!”
Żółtowski will conduct the CSO at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at SUNY Oneonta’s Hunt Union Ballroom. Tickets $30, at door or by clicking here.
