Outgoing Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak said in a statement that the city will take a few weeks for due diligence on the lease and the association’s report.

“However, our end goal is the same as it’s been all along: We want the Minnesota Orchestra back home making music. No one likes the other long-term options, and none of them are simple.”

In documents delivered on Monday, the association said five public musical events, including the Symphony Ball (which included performances by a “Twin Cities pop and jazz ensemble”) and Crash the Ball, a companion event, have generated rental and ticket income of about $600,000. The association would not identify the other programs or break down how much was made from each source. The report did not include separate fundraising totals from the ball.

Ticket income for fiscal 2014 was projected at $7.2 million.

Public and private events that were not arts performances accounted for $67,000 in income. Those totals, the report states, generated performing-arts income “well in excess of the 50 percent required to meet the Governmental Program requirements.”
