Indianapolis Symphony Musicians & Management to Meet
Musicians with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra will reportedly meet with management in the coming weeks to talk about options for pay and benefits.
Our partners at WFYI report ISO is the only orchestra of the 52 largest in the country to terminate health insurance for furloughed musicians.
The orchestra has been furloughed twice during the COVID-19 pandemic – in March and in June – with the cancellation of concerts for the spring and summer. The cut to health benefits was part of the most recent furlough.
WFYI reports the orchestra’s management has offered musicians a one-time stipend amounting to about two weeks of the ISO family plan.
