MINNEAPOLIS — The Minnesota Orchestra has canceled or rescheduled concerts through April 27 as a lockout of its musicians continues.

Orchestra President and CEO Michael Henson said Wednesday it’s been almost a year since contract negotiations began and musicians have not yet made a counteroffer.

Henson said discussions continue about how to do an independent analysis of the orchestra’s finances. Musicians say they need that before making a counteroffer.

Musicians have been locked out since Oct. 1.
