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.

  • Base pay will rise to $1,560 a week. Current pay is $1,500. Also, 83 full-time members will start at the beginning of the 2016-17 season.

  • And yet they still have NO Principal Harp position filled. It is disgusting. They are not respectable, using free-lancers for such an important job.
