Cellist C.C. Chang breaks wrist, to undergo operation

Taipei, Renowned cellist C.C. Chang (???) broke his wrist while holidaying in Vienna, Austria, and will undergo an operation at a local hospital soon, Chang confirmed to CNA Friday.

Chang, who is in Vienna on summer vacation, said the accident occurred Thursday when he ran into a pothole when cycling along the Danube River, breaking his left wrist.

The 57-year-old said he is not sure whether the injury will affect his ability to play the cello, but the doctor told him his wrist will be in plaster for four weeks.

"I really hope to play the cello again," he told CNA, noting that he is scheduled to hold a concert for wheelchair-bound fans in Taiwan in September. "I'm keen to play for them as it will be the seventh year in a row."
