A huge congratulations goes out to the Minnesota Orchestra and Osmo Vänskä tonight for their Grammy nomination and WIN for Best Orchestral Performance! BRAVO!!
Today, a settlement was reached between the Musicians of the Minnesota Orchestra and management that will have the musicians back working on February 1st, marking this day as a historic one in the world of music. We at YMM want to express our infinite gratitude for the musicians who fought so hard for what they loved and believed in; the artists who would s...ettle for nothing less than the best for our beautiful community; the performers and teachers who went day after day without salary, benefits, or sometimes even a shred of hope, weathering a brutal lockout in the hopes that, some day, music might return to the state of Minnesota.
And return it shall. Musicians, as always, we stand with you--our mentors, our inspiration, our heroes. The time has come for rebuilding, and we are here for you every step of the way.
Finally, we'll make music again.
