SPCO musicians to play Baroque concerts in January

Posted by: Claude Peck under Music, Concert news, Culture, Minnesota musicians, Orchestras, Theaters, Tickets Updated: January 7, 2013 - 12:26 PM

The locked out musicians of the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra announced two more independently produced concerts in January. Focused on music of the Italian Baroque, the SPCO will play Jan. 24 in Mahtomedi and Jan. 25 in Minneapolis.

After weeks with no direct talks, SPCO musicians and management met on Jan. 2 and 3, but both sides declined to reveal details of those talks, aimed at resolving a bitter dispute over pay, work rules and the size of the chamber orchestra.

Since the lockout, the SPCO has performed twice, most recently in concerts led by former music director Hugh Wolff. 

Their upcoming program will include The Four Seasons by Antonio Vivaldi, at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 24, St. Andrew's Lutheran Church, 900 Stillwater Av., Mahtomedi, and 7:30 p.m. Jan. 25, Central Luthern Church, 12th St. and 3rd Av., Mpls. $15-$35, 800-838-3006, or vivaldistandrews.brownpapertickets.com
