MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Orchestra has cancelled planned performances at Carnegie Hall due to a contract impasse with musicians, a move that could mean the departure of conductor Osmo Vanska.

Vanska had threatened to resign if the orchestra and musicians didn't reach agreement in time to save the Carnegie performances.

The cancellations come after musicians this weekend rejected the orchestra board's fourth proposal.
