I wonder if Mr. Moye is truthfully representing the facts.... does his estimated hourly wage average of $43.29 even begin to address all of the hours of practice each musician must spend in advance of each rehearsal and concert in order to be prepared and in shape? Just like a pastor has to prepare for Sunday, or a teacher for their classes, musicians spend their self-directed work day in hours of personal rehearsal and study. And if they don't, it just isn't possible to perform at a excellent and professional level. My sincere hope is that the management of the Spokane Symphony will realize the value of their wonderful musicians and return to the bargaining table.
