PITTSBURGH (AP) - Contract talks between the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra musicians and symphony management have been extended for two weeks.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (https://bit.ly/2ct00nS ) reports that the contract covering the musicians was to have expired at midnight Sunday.

Officials said extending the deadline until Sept. 18 will allow the orchestra to go forward with its Sept. 17 fundraising gala featuring music director Manfred Honeck and violinist Gil Shaham.

Bassist Micah Howard, chairman of the musicians’ committee, said the parties have met for the past three days without reaching agreement.

Both sides have agreed not to release details about the negotiations.
