The San Francisco Symphony (SFS) announced tonight that, due to the continuation of the ongoing work stoppage by the musicians, the Sunday 2 p.m. performance of Gustav Mahler’s ninth symphony has been cancelled and will not be rescheduled. This means that a settlement was not reached in time for any of the scheduled Mahler performances. However, negotiations are continuing, and no further concert cancellations have been announced. An update on the status of the SFS East Coast tour, scheduled to begin on March 20, is expected to be released tomorrow (Sunday).
Patrons with tickets for Sunday’s concert may exchange them for an upcoming concert, donate their tickets, or receive a refund. The Box Office may be reached by phone at 415-864-6000. The Box Office is open on Sunday from noon to 2 p.m., and hours on Mondays through Fridays are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Press Room page of the SFS Web site will be maintained with information about further cancellations and when performances will resume. Further details on the negotiations may be obtained either through the Press Room page.
