Riccardo Muti, music director of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, collapsed during a rehearsal with the ensemble.
From the Chicago Tribune:
"He is stable and talking," said CSO Association President Deborah Rutter late Thursday by phone from Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where the 69-year-old Muti was rushed after suffering a fainting spell while preparing the first subscription program of his winter residency with the CSO. He was eased into a chair while paramedics were being called, said orchestra members.
