And that does it for the 2006-2007 season of the CSO.

The first rehearsal for the 2007-2008 season is on Tuesday, September 11. As of this posting, the players and management have not agreed on a new contract. However, the week of September 10-16 is part of the current contract, so there is no danger the opening week of rehearsals and concerts would be affected if an agreement is not reached by that time.

Beyond that, we will have to wait and see.
