Union Strike Causes Additional Spokane Symphony Concert Cancellations

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. - The musician's decision to halt negotiations and strike on November 3 has forced the Spokane Symphony to cancel its next four concerts.

"We are very disappointed that our patrons and ticket holders will be deprived of these wonderful concerts. The strike follows several months of negotiations in which the Society bargained respectfully and in good faith, returning to the table on Nov. 1. There have been multiple offers and many concessions by the Society with lack of any agreement," said Spokane Symphony Board President Peter Moye.

"As a local, independent non-profit arts organization, our priority has been to pursue long-term sustainability and protect musician jobs. While we worked very hard to reach an agreement, the union chose to strike rather than continue bargaining.

The musicians are being represented by an international union negotiator, who represents a national agenda rather than seeking consensus. We are dismayed that we have been forced into the position of canceling this much anticipated line-up of concert experiences," Moye said.

Concerts canceled include:

  • Symphony with a Splash, Friday, Nov. 9;
  • Video Games Live, Saturday, Nov, 10;
  • Classics – Rachmaninoff and Pictures, Saturday, Nov. 17;
  • Classics – Rachmaninoff and Pictures, Sunday, Nov. 18. click here for more
