Another of the Minnesota Orchestra's locked-out musicians has quit the ensemble. Assistant concertmaster Stephanie Arado (pictured) has resigned to take up a teaching post at the Interlochen Center for the Arts in Michigan.
Arado, who joined the Minnesota Orchestra in 1991, wrote in an email to the orchestra's leadership: '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 – the Minnesota Orchestra – has lost its way.'
Musicians in the Minnesota Orchestra have been locked out since 1 October 2012 in a contract dispute. Other principal musicians to have departed since the lockout began include principal second violinist Gina DiBello, who won a section violin position with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and principal clarinettist Burt Hara, who was granted a leave of absence to join the Los Angeles Philharmonic as associate principal clarinettist.
