Jacksonville Symphony Agrees to New Contract

The Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra (JSO) has ratified a new contract that covers musicians through the 2016/2017 season. Negotiations for the previous contract were difficult, and ended with an 11% salary cut. While this new contract does not completely restore the losses, it provides a 2.5% raise this season and next, and a 1.5% raise in the 2016-2017 season.

JSO feels optimistic about its future, with a new music director, Courtney Lewis, and a new president, Robert Massey, who was previously executive director of Orchestra Iowa.
