MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Every seat was filled in front of the bandshell, on the edge of Lake Harriet. Then, the crowd filled in the grass for rows and rows beyond the seats.

The musicians wearing neon green shirts played for more than an hour for the audience.

The Orchestra Hall musicians have been locked out since Oct. 1 of last year.

Management had hoped the musicians would have accepted a recent offer, but by Sunday but it looks as though that won’t happen.

Organizers say the free concert was held to thank the community for their support.

The season is still in jeopardy, with the conductor, Osmo Vänskä saying their performance at Carnegie Hall may not happen.
