MINNEAPOLIS - The Minnesota Orchestra is canceling more concerts as a musicians lockout continues.

The orchestra on Monday canceled two more concerts in the third week of February, postponed another until next year and transferred a fourth to another promoter.

Minnesota Public Radio News reports the moves come as the contract dispute between management and musicians remains unresolved, despite recent talks.

Orchestra management locked out its musicians last Oct. 1 after the old contract expired. A federal mediator is currently overseeing contract talks.

A spokesman for the musicians union had no comment on the latest concert cancellations.
