Ongoing Strike Forces Cancellation of Much-Anticipated DSO Home for the Holidays and Canadian Brass Concerts; Manhattan Transfer Christmas Still Scheduled as Planned for Dec. 14

DETROIT, (Dec. 13, 2010) The Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) announced today that due to the ongoing strike by its musicians, the much-anticipated Home for the Holidays concerts (Dec. 16-19) – a Detroit tradition of holiday entertainment enjoyed by thousands of families – as well as a concert featuring Canadian Brass (Dec. 21) must be cancelled.  The Manhattan Transfer Christmas concert is still scheduled as planned for Dec. 14 at 8 p.m

The cancellations allow thousands of ticket holders to exchange tickets, request refunds, and make alternative plans.  Guest artists and conductors affected by these cancellations will appear in future seasons and plans are already in place for Canadian Brass to return to Orchestra Hall in December 2011. DSO Education programs and rentals will continue as planned through December.
