WAYZATA, Minn. -- Musicians with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra aren't letting a contract dispute silence them.

The orchestra performed an all Mozart concert this afternoon at the Wayzata Community Church.

The event raised funds for the musicians who have been locked since late October because of a contract dispute.  Official concerts have been canceled through the end of the year.

Carole Mason Smith with the SPCO Musicians association says, "the support is just pouring from the audience so we thank everybody who's at our concert, everybody who supports us."

It's been nearly a month since SPCO musicians and management sat down to negotiate.

The Minnesota Orchestra is also locked out amid a contract dispute.
Those musicians will play two concerts later this month.
