MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Musicians of the Minnesota Orchestra aren’t letting a seemingly never-ending lockout stop them from performing.

Starting Friday, the musicians will begin a 10-concert run for the Winter-Spring season, called “Music For Minnesota: A Season of Shining Stars!”

On Friday and Saturday at the Ted Mann Concert Hall, the musicians will perform “Memory and Reverence: Minnesota Chorale in Mozart’s Requiem,” conducted by former St. Paul Chamber Orchestra conductor Hugh Wolff. Tickets are available here.

“Our goal is to maintain a world-class concert schedule for the community, and we are grateful for the community’s continued support,” cellist Tony Ross said. “We are grateful to these renowned musicians and conductors for their commitment to keep the music alive in Minnesota.”

The concert series will also feature well-known violinists Joshua Bell and Itzhak Perlman and the Minnesota Chorale.

Check out the season listing and on-sale dates here.

On the musicians’ website, the musicians said if the lockout does end, they “could work with management to merge any planned concerts produced by the Orchestral Association with those produced by the Musicians.”
