A concert taking place a week ago in Düsseldorf, Germany, was delayed when musicians of the Breslau Chamber Orchestra Leopoldinum (pictured) were locked in the dressing room, according to klassik.com.

The Sunday afternoon programme of Corelli, Weber, Mozart and Brahms held at Düsseldorf’s Tonhalle failed to get off to the most auspicious of starts when the male musicians were accidentally locked in their dressing room due to a faulty lock. They were ultimately freed by the combined efforts of porter, caretaker and fellow musicians.

The Breslau Chamber Orchestra Leopoldinum was founded in 1978 in Poland, and is currently directed by viola soloist Hartmut Rohde, professor at the Berlin’s University of Arts and at the Royal Academy of Music London.
