Fort Wayne Philharmonic cancels concerts through April 11

FORT WAYNE, Indiana (WANE) – On Tuesday, the Fort Wayne Philharmonic announced it was canceling all scheduled concerts through April 11 due to the musicians’ strike.

As a result, six concerts were canceled by the Philharmonic’s management, as well as a community engagement event.

Philharmonic management said it made changes to the final Jan. 7 offering, including retaining all 44 core seats in the orchestra and revising the attendance policy for per-service status seats.

Musician spokesman Campbell MacDonald released a statement on behalf of the musicians Tuesday in response to the cancellations:

“The Fort Wayne Philharmonic’s decision to cancel additional concerts amid ongoing negotiations signals their disinterest in reaching an agreement at this time.

After meetings earlier this month where we offered numerous compromises alongside various concessions on working rules, the Philharmonic continues to demand punitive control conditions from musicians that block a fair solution.

We have suggested numerous dates to the Philharmonie over the past week, but have not yet received an answer as to their availability.”

Those who have purchased tickets for any of the canceled concerts will be contacted regarding their ticket options, according to the Philharmoniker.

The Philharmonic’s management said it “remains optimistic about the work that has been done towards unity and the return of music to the community”. Fort Wayne Philharmonic cancels concerts through April 11
