Orchestra Nova cancels 2012-2013 Season

Orchestra Nova San Diego announced Oct. 26 that it has cancelled the remaining concerts for the 2012 –2013 season. This comes after an impasse in union negotiations, the resignation of its conductor and artistic director Jung-Ho Pak, and the decision to cancel its October concert series Amadeus In Concert.

CEO Beverly Lambert said, “We cancelled the October concert series due to the threat of a last-minute strike, as happened with the Chicago symphony in September. This would have left us with a concert hall full of ticket holders, guest artists waiting to perform, and no concert to give. We had to eliminate the possibility of such a scenario and, therefore, cancelled the October concerts. Thereafter, with no reasonable hope of a successful outcome to the negotiations and the loss of our conductor, it was virtually impossible to deliver the rest of our season.

“Our ticket holders have always been our highest priority and providing them with the most engaging and inspiring entertainment experience possible is paramount. Although we will not be able to deliver our concerts, we are quite pleased to announce that we have successfully partnered with over 20 arts organizations in San Diego County who have agreed to honor Orchestra Nova tickets for their high-quality events, exhibitions and performances. These groups include some of the most respected and sought-after arts providers in the country, and we are most grateful for their generosity and concern for Orchestra Nova guests.”
