The Minnesota Orchestra has won its first Grammy for best orchestral performance.
    
The Star Tribune reports the award was for "Sibelius: Symphonies Nos. 1 & 4" that were recorded in 2012.
    
The orchestra ended a long lockout on Jan. 14. Conductor Osmo Vanska resigned as music director in October after union talks stalled.
    
Principal cellist Tony Ross issued a statement Sunday on behalf of the musician's union, saying it needs Vanska to return and "carry on with the projects and partnership that have brought this orchestra acclaim worldwide."
    
Three other Grammys were related to the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra project "Winter Morning Walks." Dawn Upshaw won best classical vocal solo, Maria Schneider won best contemporary classical composition and David Frost won best engineered recording and best classical engineer.
