We are deeply disappointed in our Management’s unwillingness to compromise on key issues in these negotiations. We had hoped that the mutually agreed upon media blackout and negotiating in private would result in significant progress that would have permitted the balance of the 2012-13 season to be presented. Since that has not happened, we decided to end the off-the-record negotiations and the media blackout.

The musicians of the SPCO met up with “Messiah” again, as well as with their former music director, Hugh Wolff. It proved an inspiring meeting of musical minds and souls, a sharply focused performance of intensity, energy and technical precision.
