The St. Paul Chamber Orchestra has canceled all performances through the end of the year.

The musicians unanimously rejected management’s latest contract offer.

Management had asked for salary cuts and a reduction in the size of the orchestra after suffering nearly a million dollar deficit last year. The musicians counter that reduced wages will see the best players leaving for better-paying jobs, damaging the orchestra’s artistic standing.

SPCO management locked out the musicians last week.

Musicians at the area’s other ensemble, the Minnesota Orchestra, has been locked out for a month.
