Minn. Orchestra cancels more concerts


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The Minnesota Orchestra is canceling more concerts as a musicians lockout continues.

The orchestra on Monday canceled two more concerts in the third week of February, postponed another until next year and transferred a fourth to another promoter.

Minnesota Public Radio News (http://bit.ly/10uTAfn) reports the moves come as the contract dispute between management and musicians remains unresolved, despite recent talks.

Orchestra management locked out its musicians last Oct. 1 after the old contract expired. A federal mediator is currently overseeing contract talks.

A spokesman for the musicians union had no comment on the latest concert cancellations.
