Letter of the Day (April 14): Minnesota Orchestra

  • April 13, 2013 - 4:53 PM

I’m a 12-year-old violinist writing about my concerns regarding the Minnesota Orchestra lockout. I’ve attended many concerts in the past, and each one has been spectacular. These are my musical heroes. I have heard that the Minnesota Orchestra is a Top 10 orchestra. I find it ridiculous that such a wonderful group would not be better-supported. The actions of management are unfair. Locking out the musicians is cruel and will not solve anything. I hope the lockout ends soon so I can once again hear beautiful music in my hometown.
