BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A lockout of the musicians that make up the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra will take effect Monday.

The orchestra’s board of directors approved the lockout after the musicians and management could not reach an agreement by the end of the regular subscription season.

The move comes as the BSO works to end years of financial losses that led them to cancel their summer season.
