  2. Glad to see this. Hope you receive a lot of support. Our subscription seats — which were cancelled — were for the morning concert. Unfortunately, we have unchangeable plans for that evening, but we will be thinking of you. We certainly hope the two sides will be able to reach agreement SOON. Best regards to each of you in this marvelous orchestra.

  3. Dear LOMoMO and the Legend,
    Just a quick note to say I’m thinking of you. I can’t wait for Thursday. Thank you all so much for putting this concert together. Your patrons are grateful to you for all of your hard work in making this concert happen. It is a reminder to the rest of us that we have to step up to the plate and help out. How? Here are some suggestions:
    1. Buy a couple of extra tickets and bring someone to the concert who loves music but maybe has not heard the orchestra.
    2. ALL MUSIC TEACHERS private and classroom. Talk to your students about the value of listening to great orchestra music and encourage them to ask their parents to go to the concert or talk directly to the parents.
    News flash to other piano teachers–How in the heck are you going to understand Mozart’s intentions in a piano sonata without understanding bow markings? We become better musicians, pianists , and teachers listening to great live orchestral music.
    3. Let’s show the bankster board and management team what the “little people” in Minnesota can do Donate to the musician fund

  4. Words cannot express the joy I felt listening to you
    tonight. There were tears of sadness too, but mostly joy. You filled my soul and it was pretty hungry. Thank you
