Re: “Annotating the Music

"Other orchestras have different business models."
A comparison of different orchestra leave policies, that illustrates how unreasonable the Spokane Symphony´s policy is:
I also outlined the importance of unpaid leave for other musical work here
"Some have non-music second jobs."
As one of two core members who have full-time day jobs, I am in a unique position to comment on this, which I have done here
Basically, an organization that claims to support professional music can not and should not rely on its musicians having non-musical day jobs as its "business model". Once the Spokane Symphony starts down this path, it can no longer honestly state that it supports professional music in Spokane.
The musicians want the organization to continue on the path of supporting professional orchestral music in Spokane. What I read from the Symphony Board is a vision of part-time day jobbers who play in the Symphony as a hobby. How can you expect an audience, donors and sponsors to be excited by and be willing to support that?

Re: “Way Out of Tune

Mr. Herold, thank you for this article.
My only clarification to add is that the leave the musicians are trying to expand is all *unpaid*. I have written about this in detail here
