Atlanta Symphony Cancels Performances Amid Stalled Contract Talks

    The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra has cancelled performances of its 2014-2015 shows. The cancellation follows strikes, lockouts and tense contract negotiations in recent at major symphonies across the US. In the last performance season, ticket sales accounted for about $4 million, but the cost for putting on those performances was close to $22 million, according to the orchestra’s management. “Cancelling concerts is the last thing any of us wants to do, but to respect the schedules of our patrons, guest artists, artistic partners and our 200-member volunteer chorus, we feel we have no other choice,” said Stanley Romanstein, the orchestra’s president. source/s: http://blogs.wsj.com/speakeasy/2014/09/22/atlanta-symphony-cancels-performances-amid-stalled-contract-talks/
