The Minnesota Orchestra and the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra have both canceled concerts through mid-December and have locked out their musicians. Last week, the Minnesota Orchestra got news that they'd been nominated for a Grammy for best Orchestral performance.

Euan Kerr, MPR News arts reporter, has been covering the disputes from the beginning. He joins The Daily Circuit to update us on the latest lockout news and take your questions.
