MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The locked-out musicians of the Minnesota Orchestra plan to reunite with their former maestro for a concert next week.
The musicians will perform with conductor Stanislaw Skrowaczewski on Oct. 18 at the Minneapolis Convention Center Auditorium.
Skrowaczewski was the orchestra's music director from 1960 to 1979. Tickets range from $15-40 per seat and are available online or by phone.
The concert replaces the opening night concerts that were canceled by the Minnesota Orchestral Association when the musicians were locked out Oct. 1.
Management and musicians failed to reach a new agreement before the old contract expired. The Minnesota Orchestra's concerts are canceled through Nov. 25.
