The locked out musicians of the Minnesota Orchestra today announced they have sold out all the seats for their concerts December 15th and 16th at the Ted Mann Concert Hall at the U of M.
The musicians are now working with the U of M box office to provide standing room tickets for the concerts. They are also making sure that any returned tickets will be made available.
The two programs will feature former Minnesota Orchestra Music Director Edo de Waart, and former Concertmaster Jorja Fleezanis playing an evening of Bach and Beethoven.
The concerts had been pitched as a way of partly filling the void left by the cancellation of all concerts through the holiday season. A spokesman for the musicians said it’s unlikely there will be more concerts added before the holidays as the players want to maintain quality, but there is always a chance.
