Orchestra director steps down

Zarin Mehta, president and executive director of the New York Philharmonic, said he will step down in August 2012, when his contract expires.

The announcement came days after the Republic of Georgia canceled performances by the orchestra, citing financial difficulties. In an interview, Mehta said the decision to leave was not related to the loss of the Georgia bookings.
