Concertmaster falls out with her orchestramain
The energetic concertmaster of the Chattanooga Symphony Orchestra, Holly Mulcahy, is suing the company for breach of contract.
The filing says the orchestra has failed to fulfil a solo performance on October 6. She is seeking up to $25,000 in damages.
Neither side is saying more, perhaps because it’s a holiday weekend in the US.
Whether this is a complete breakdown or a temporary blip remains to be seen.
Holly, who is also concertmaster in Wichita, is married to the orchestral consultant Drew McManus, whose compensation analyses appear annually in Slipped Disc. She has greatly raised the Chattanooga orchestra’s profile over the past half-decade.
