But Carneiro is at home in Lisbon, Portugal, expecting the birth of her fourth child, and the Symphony has announced that she is unable to travel to Berkeley. The concerts will go on, however, with guest conductor Keitaro Harada on the podium. Harada will conduct Faure’s “Cantique de Jean Racine,” Berlioz’s “Symphonie fantastique” and Gordon Getty’s cantata, “Joan and the Bells,” featuring soprano Lisa Delan and baritone Lester Lynch as the vocal soloists.

So, today I am meeting with a lawyer to get a restraining order against my dad.”.
