The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra will have two guest conductors for the next two programs which were originally scheduled to have Arild Remmereit at the podium.

Yoav Talmi will conduct the Mozart and More program, while Andrew Constantine will conduct A Mozart Family Affair. The RPO issued a statement stating that the guest conductors were necessary, as Remmereit did not confirm that he would be at the podium for these two programs.

Talmi has previously been a guest conductor in Rochester, he is currently principal guest conductor of the Israel Chamber Orchestra in Tel Aviv and conductor emeritus of the Quebec Symphony. Constantine is music director for the Fort Wayne Philharmonic and Reading Symphony Orchestra.
