MN Orchestra still without a contractMN Orchestra still without a contract
In the afterglow of its high-profile trip to Cuba, the Minnesota Orchestra unveiled generous raises in contract extensions with its unionized musicians and music director Osmo Vänskä. So are the deficits and financial challenges that triggered a 15-month musicians’ lockout in the past? No, says Charles Gray, a professor of business economics who has been tracking the Minnesota Orchestra’s finances since the early 1990s. “The problem is not solved; the problem is just postponed,” Gray explains. “A one-time gift can tide us over. But we are buying time and that time is going to expire, and we are right back in the thick of things.”

Hong Kong Phil stirs funding debate
A private concert by the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra in Amsterdam has sparked debate on how arts groups that receive government subsidies should cultivate new fundraising avenues. Eyebrows were raised after it emerged that the musicians played at the event - allegedly a birthday party on the last stop of its European tour. An anonymous letter received claimed the benefactor had long-term links to the Phil's music director Jaap van Zweden, as had served on the boards of orchestras Zweden had previously worked for, including the Amsterdam Sinfonietta and Dallas Symphony.
