San Antonio Symphony proposes cutting size of orchestra by almost half

This article has been updated.

After an initial contract proposal that would reduce musicians’ pay by 50%, the San Antonio Symphony is seeking to drastically reduce the size of the orchestra.

Mary Ellen Goree, second principal violinist and negotiating committee member representing the Musicians of the San Antonio Symphony, said Symphony management is proposing to slash the size of the orchestra from 71 full-time musicians to 42. She characterized the proposal as the Symphony board’s “last, best, and final offer” of ongoing negotiations for the final year of the 2019-2022 contract.
