Go. These may be the last world-class orchestra concerts you can hear and drive back to your Twin Cities home the same day. What "does not change" is the apparent goal of MO and SPCO management to destroy two of the Metro's leading cultural establishments, for what end I cannot say. I say again, go.

I hope they come together as musicians and find a concert hall that works for them, and develop their own infrastructure leaving the current administration high and dry. The musicians have my full support!

Didn't this very newspaper say that management should submit to an independent financial analysis? How can the musicians make ANY counter-proposal when they're in the dark? For goodness' sake...go to this concert, by these musicians. This is what makes your community special, not your new fancy lobby.

I hope these Orchestras find a place to perform, sell out at every performance and show management what they can do with their 30% wage cut. Go Musicians, you are making me proud!

It's time for the Orchestra management to be sacked. They are the real problem.

Please read the current post by guest-blogger Mary Schaefle on Song of the Lark. She digs through available financial orchestra documents and raises a number of troubling issues.

I live in Charleston, SC and two years ago we nearly lost our symphony orchestra due to budget constraints. The musicians took a very hefty paycut in order to stay alive. You would not believe what the average pay is....very low! We are very grateful to have them back and the community has responded in-kind. Please support your arts! If we can do it down here, I know you can up there! Good Luck to the MO and SPCO!!
