The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Players’ Association agreed today on a three-year contract extension, six months ahead of schedule.
The players will get a three percent pay rise annually over the three years.
An anonymous donor apparently made the deal possible.
The ASO has also agreed to fund 11 more seats in the orchestra, restoring a full complement of 88 musicians.
The deal draws the line beneath the residue of a bitter lockout of the musicians four years ago.
