The DSO players have been on strike since October 4, 2010. DSO management has been intransigent in its efforts to force the musicians to accept its plan to cut pay by 33% and impose drastic changes in work rules. The future of the DSO as a world class orchestra is at stake. These photos start from Labor Day and show the outreach performances by the players through 2010.
