NEW YORK — Carnegie Hall is canceling its season opening concert by The Philadelphia Orchestra due to a stagehands strike.
The New York concert hall says Wednesday's performance with violinist Joshua Bell has been cancelled. Future performances remain on schedule.
The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees and Carnegie Hall have been in talks over a new contract since mid-2012.
Carnegie Hall says the dispute centers on the union's demand for jurisdiction over the Education Wing that's set to open next year.
