Homeless violinist ‘was victim of Minnesota Orchestra lockout’main
The man who lost all his possessions in Portland, Oregon, when the car he lived in caught fire was (we have been informed by a Slipped Disc reader) one of the musicians who was forced out of the Minnesota Orchestra during its brutal lockout regime.
David Wright said at the time: ‘I played with the Minnesota Orchestra, and I was a career musician for 29 years. I heard from [MOA board member] Jim Davis last year, and I knew that this was not going to go well, so I left and took a severely reduced pension, with a cut of 11 percent.’
This was David then.
We’re trying to find a way to contact him and raise help.
