Trouble at Melbourne Symphony as players are cut off without payOrchestras
We hear that that orchestra’s CEO Sophie Galaise has terminated all freelance contracts, leaving a group of regular players without pay, or prospects of work in the future.
Covid is being blamed. Other agendas are also possible.
But morale in the Melbourne Symphony has just gone south … or even further south… and the players are too scared to speak out (except privately to slippedisc.com).
Galaise recently announced that the company was in good shape.
