ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — Community members and donors of the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra are offering locked out musicians another alternative if a deal can’t be reached with SPCO management.
The organization says they have launched a new exploratory committee that will see if a new arts organization can be started to house musicians of the SPCO. Mariellen Jacobson, chairperson of the organization, says the alternative is being given to musicians if an agreement can’t be reached with SPCO management.
“We’ve heard from some [musicians] who are very interested in what we’re doing,” Jacobson said. “Everybody, including us, hopes the society and musicians can agree on a contract that’s really acceptable to everybody.”
