The orchestra's board said Thursday, April 24, 2014, that Vanska will lead at least 10 weeks of concerts for each of the next two seasons. Vanska resigned in October during a lockout of the orchestra's musicians that lasted more than a year. The dispute ended in January, when musicians agreed to pay cuts in a new three-year contract.

Justin Timberlake poses with his multiple Moonman awards during the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards in New YorkThe annual MTV Video Music Awards, one of the music industry's top televised showcases, will return to Los Angeles this summer from New York City, the U.S. cable channel said on Wednesday. The show, popular among MTV's young viewers prized by advertisers, will take place on August 24, the day before TV's Emmy Awards, at the Forum in Inglewood, California, about eight miles southwest of downtown Los Angeles. The Video Music Awards, which hand out "Moonman" statuettes of an astronaut planting an MTV flag, can be crucial exposure for singers and bands and is best known for its unscripted and often provocative moments. And just as last year's show helped unveil the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, this year's show will also help relaunch Madison Square Garden Co's recently renovated Forum, an arena which had been bypassed by major events since the Staples Center opened in downtown Los Angeles in 1998.
