Detroit Symphony Orchestra cancels concerts through end of the year
The Associated Press reports:
The orchestra on Monday announced that the Home for the Holidays concerts scheduled for Thursday through Sunday as well as a December 21st concert featuring Canadian Brass had been cancelled. A Manhattan Transfer Christmas concert at Orchestra Hall still is scheduled for Tuesday night.
The DSO musicians have been on strike since October 4th due to a dispute over pay cuts with the DSO management. Last week, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra reported a $6.7 million budget shortfall for the 2010 fiscal year.
