The great East Coast concert halls like Carnegie and the Kennedy Center will not resound with performances of Mahler’s Ninth Symphony by the San Francisco Symphony this week according to the Mar. 18, Los Angeles Times.
The musicians rejected a “cooling off” period which would allow the East Coast tour scheduled to begin Wednesday while talks continue; instead, the West Coast based orchestra chose to continue with their strike which has already forced the cancellation of four San Francisco concerts at Davies Symphony Hall, the orchestra's home.
A proposal for a “new annual minimum salary of $145,979 with annual increases of 1% and 2%” was one of several offers rejected by the band of musicians.
According to the LA Times, Carnegie Hall says they will not reschedule the cancelled concerts.
