Musicians of the Minnesota Orchestra will perform a free concert Sept. 15 at the Lake Harriet band shell in Minneapolis. The players did the same thing last September, when it looked like contract talks were headed for trouble. And what trouble. A year later, the musicians have been locked out since Oct. 1, and negotiations are practically nonexistent.

Manny Laureano, principal trumpet, will conduct Weber's Overture to "Der Freischutz" and Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5.

Last year's performance at Lake Harriet drew nearly 4,000 supporters.
