The San Francisco Symphony has canceled its East Coast tour, which included performances at the prestigious Carnegie Hall and Kennedy Center in New York. The decision came after pay negotiations between the Symphony’s administration and musicians failed to reach a resolution. The musicians have been striking since Wednesday.
