Would this be called a gaggle of oboists?
Would have been more impressive without the pay cuts. Some coverage didn’t even bother to mention the musicians’ concessions, although they did, of course, feel the staff’s pain.
The Chicago Lyric Opera orchestra has a new contract after threatening to strike.
New Mexico Symphony musicians have a new contract, although it sucks. The AP thinks that a reduction in base salary from $20, 592 to $16, 270 is a 12% cut, because that’s what management told them. The CEO of the NMSO makes over $100,00 per year, by the way, so presumably he’s good with numbers like this.
