Re: “Annotating the Music

Reply to Biznus: If the touring San Francisco opera can give a performance in Sandpoint (at the Panida Theater?), why couldn't the Woldson Theater give them a stage and use up several of the orchestra's services at the same time? Similarly the Spokane Opera could be 'invited' to perform with the orchestra at the Woldson Theater and use up several more services. Instead of paying rent for the hall they could start out paying only for the overhead. Three operas might use up 30 or more services.
People could appreciate the Symphony Board for their efforts on behalf of the orchestra since they do not get paid for their work. Instead they help get everyone else paid.

Re: “Annotating the Music

Aren´t classical musicians like ballet dancers? They have to stay in good ´form´ and even aim for inspiration in performances. If they are often tired, it may not turn out so well, and repeatedly.
Ask the conductors, Preu and Nakahara, about it, who have to lead 2.5 hours of rehearsal at the end of the day.

The conductor probably wouldn't love it either.

Re: “Annotating the Music

"musicians that demand $40,000-135,000"
This is a misapprehension. This is what some orchestras offer, and whoever wins an audition for a position offering this salary will receive it. A musician auditioning for an orchestral position does not demand a salary beforehand. If the orchestra is not holding an audition and is instead inviting a particular person to fill a position, then there might be some negotiating about salary going on.

Re: “Annotating the Music

There was also an assertion that might be hard to substantiate,
"they all have plenty of opportunities to earn other income."

Re: “Annotating the Music

Why not observe the phraseology at work here? There has already been a "harsh new business reality," and now there is,
that volume of orchestra music
non-music second jobs
the September through following May season
Symphony’s musician business model
our concerts
don’t leave us...hanging for a better-paying gig that weekend
closest qualified talent pool for many substitutes
compared to before the Great Recession
our concerts

Re: “Annotating the Music

My idea is the best, in my current OPINION, because it prevents a victory on either side. Therefore people will continue to ignore it.
