More knock-ons from yearlong lockout as Minnesota vocal concert is left in the cold

The group VocalEssence had booked to open its 45th season in Minneapolis’s glamorously refurbished Orchestra Hall.

They engaged 50 union musicians. But union musicians are not allowed to perform in Orchestra Hall so long as the Minnesota Orchestra musicians are locked out.

So VocalEssence is having to move its concert to a church. The British composer Jonatahan Dove will take part.

Press release here.

  • Yet another concert I will be boycotting.

    Play nice, people. Or you will drive your organisations to an early grave.
