The Baltimore Symphony has negotiated a new one-year deal with its musicians, just before its president Paul Meecham shuffles off into the Utah saltlands.
Tim Smith reports that players will get a 1.33 percent rise in September, with an extra 2.63 percent on May 1, 2017.
Base pay in Baltimore will rise to $1,560 a week.
Meecham is not the only one heading to the Utah Symphony. Associate concertmaster Madeline Adkins goes, too.
