Aren't the Orchestra Musicians from the Shreveport Symphony on Strike?

If that's the case, is Shreveport Opera using pre-recorded music?

Or are they importing an orchestra to play instead of the Shreveport Symphony?

Just wondering...

This is actually a touring company which comes equipped with its own orchestra. So there will be a full orchestra during the show.
