Save Our Symphony Minnesota Hosting "Ending the Lockout Will Be a Ball!" Rally at Orchestra Hall
Audience advocacy group Save Our Symphony Minnesota is collaborating with Musicians of the Minnesota Orchestra and other local jazz, vocal and brass musicians to present a rally outside Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis in the afternoon and evening of Sep 20.
Scheduled rally activities include instrumental performances, choral performances, short statements by movement leaders, and more. Performers will come from many genres of music, and will include the legendary Charlie Maguire, the Twin Cities Labor Chorus, New Orleans style jazz group Band of Praise, and the Twin Cities Horn Club. Musicians from all traditions recognize the damage the Minnesota Orchestra lockout has done to our arts community.
This rally, sponsored and organized by SOSMN, will take place irrespective of the state of the lockout. It is not SOSMN's intention to vilify the donors who are attending the two Ball events, but rather to celebrate music and musicians while asking Ball attendees to use their influence to bring back the Orchestra.
Save Our Symphony Minnesota is a large coalition of patrons, donors, and students whose concerns have gone unaddressed by the board and management of the Minnesota Orchestral Association during its nearly year-long lockout of orchestra musicians.
