The Detroit Symphony Orchestra has canceled three additional weeks of concerts due to the musicians strike, beginning with four classical performances Thursday through Sunday that were to have been conducted by music director Leonard Slatkin.

In addition, Pops Series concerts next week and an additional weekend of classical concerts Nov. 26-28 have been canceled. A total of 27 concerts have now been canceled since the five-week old strike began Oct. 4.

Meanwhile, Viktoria Mullova plays Beethoven this week with the Minnesota Orchestra.

Question Time

I'm not sure why it took out station so long to have Artists in Residence--seems like a logical enough idea. Now that the program has been in place for a year or so, we can say it's been a fantastic experience.

Members of the male choral group Cantus will be in the studio on Thursday, answering your questions and playing requests. If you have one (or both)--let us hear from you!
