A deadline from Minnesota Orchestra’s management to bring negotiations with the locked out musicians to an end expired yesterday, with both sides willing to continue negotiations. In a statement released on Sunday evening, management said: “The board has offered a further revision to its compromise proposal that seeks to end the lockout and result in a multiyear contract, and discussions involving the mediator have been ongoing this weekend. We are currently awaiting word from the musicians regarding the proposal. We will share further news as soon as we are able to do so on Monday.”

Meanwhile, the musicians gave their own concert in the Lake Harriet Band Shell on Sunday afternoon, playing for a large and enthusiastic audience.
