Minn. Orchestra Cancels Carnegie Hall Concerts, Vänskä Expected To Quit

The Minnesota Orchestra announced late Monday afternoon that the planned Carnegie Hall concerts have been canceled, a move which is widely expected to result in the departure of famed director and conductor Osmo Vänskä. Vänskä originally set the Monday deadline, saying he would quit if there was not a deal that would bring musicians back to work. The possible loss of Vänskä is widely seen as a significant blow to the orchestra’s reputation. Vänskä has not yet made a public statement as of early Monday evening.
