The Minnesota Orchestra Association has called off all classical concerts until April in furtherance of its dispute with the musicians, who have been locked out since October.
The MOA will, however, continue with non-classical concerts – and with its $52 million building refurbishment, $14m of which is contributed by the taxpayer.
It is too late to ask what the MOA think it is doing. We have a fairly clear idea where its priorities lie. The orchestra seems irrelevant to its future.
The League of American Orchestras should consider expelling this rogue organisation.
