One day after agreeing to suspend their week-old strike to perform with
singer/songwriter James Taylor this weekend, the striking members
of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra reversed that decision Thursday
(Sept. 30), according to a spokesperson for the venue, Roy Thomson Hall.
The shows, Taylor's first with the orchestra, were to take place Friday
and Saturday nights (Oct. 12). The Toronto Musicians Association
has been on strike since Sept. 25, resulting in the cancellation of six
performances to date, including the Taylor shows.
