MINNEAPOLIS - Musicians with the Minnesota Orchestra are performing in a free concert at the Lake Harriet Bandshell on Sunday night.
The concert is a sort-of thank you to fans who missed an entire season last year after management locked out the musicians.
The two sides are tirelessly working to strike a deal. KARE 11 is told that those negotiations have lingered into the weekend.
The Musicians invited the board of directors of the Minnesota Orchestra Association to the 5 p.m. concert in hopes they will accept the independent mediator's proposal.
In early September, The Minnesota Orchestra musicians unanimously rejected the last offer from management, putting the orchestra's upcoming season in jeopardy.
