14th Minnesota Orchestra Resignation Since October Lockout


Violinist and Assistant Concertmaster Stephanie Arado has announced her resignation from the Minnesota Orchestra

"My decision to undertake this career change now grew out of my sense that the institution that I have devoted my creative energy to for the past two decades has lost its way," she has said

Ms Arado is the 14th member to have left the ensemble since October 1st 2012 - when the musicians were locked out by management over contract disputes

Ms Arado has accepted a teaching position at the Interlochen Arts Academy, in Michigan
