Mezzo-soprano Jennifer Larmore has withdrawn from two scheduled appearances with the New York Philharmonic next month because she is ill, the Philharmonic announced. Beth Clayton will replace her.

The concerts on July 9 and 10 are the last events in the Philharmonic's Summertime Classics series at Avery Fisher Hall. They are conducted by Bramwell Tovey, music director of the Vancouver Symphony, and also feature soprano Laura Claycomb.

As previously scheduled, the program will include the Bell Song and the Flower Duet from Delibes' Lakm_, the Fanfare from Dukas' La P_ri, Bizet's L'Arl_sienne Suite No. 2, and the overture to Offenbach's Orpheus in the Underworld. "Seguidilla" from Bizet's Carmen and "Mon coeur s'ouvre _ ta voix" from Samson et Dalila, both to be sung by Clayton, replace arias by Cras, Offenbach, and Meyerbeer.
