Singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright, who was to have his San Francisco Symphony-commissioned song cycle, “Five Shakespeare Sonnets,” premiere at Davies Hall in April, has postponed, due to scheduling conflicts.

I never understand things like this. I keep a very careful calendar. If I double booked I’d probably get fired — or never hired back if it’s not a place where I have tenure — if I bagged a job. But I’ve heard of this happening before to people who are “stars”. Do they have agents who make this error? Is something else really the cause for the cancellation or delay? Does “schedule conflict” just look better?

I read it here.
