I just returned from this afternoon's concert - it was the best Beethoven I've ever heard, and that's saying a lot.

It appears that great music can be made and appreciated...sans fifty million-dollar lobby.

It's past time that this was resolved. The board's opening salvo was way out of line and unreasonable. Have the musicians made a counter offer?

The concert on Saturday evening was beautiful. We cannot lose these gifted musicians--we would never forgive ourselves if we did.

Great. It should be easy to figure out from here. All the Orchestra needs to do is publish the ticket price hikes that'll be needed to pay the musicians what they are worth. If they can sell enough tickets at the higher prices, problem solved. If not, then either the Twin Cities cannot support a world-class orchestra, or the musicians aren't worth the pay they are demanding. It's that simple.
