Perlman Concert Cancelled at STL Symphony

Powell Symphony Hall
Powell Symphony Hall


St. Louis – The St. Louis Symphony Orchestra's work stoppage has claimed its biggest name. Managers of the ensemble today scrapped more concerts, this time featuring guest conductor Itzhak Perlman.

The violinist was to have performed with the orchestra on January 20th and 22nd.

But the ensemble's management says that given the orchestra's first work stoppage since 1979, it'd be best to let patrons know a decision as early as possible on the Perlman shows.

The work stoppage began January third.

Tickets to any canceled shows may be exchanged for shows later in the season or a full refund.

No new talks are scheduled.

However a charity concert for victims of the South Asian tsunami remained scheduled for Friday evening.
