    The SF symphony musicians and management have struck a harmonious chord after a two-week strike.

    After more than two weeks of of silence, the striking San Francisco Symphony musicians and the management have seemed to have struck a harmonious chord.

    The two sides have struck a tentative agreement for a new 26-month contract, which won't be fully disclosed until it is ratified in the next few days, according to the symphony's website.

    San Francisco Symphony musicians are seeking roughly around a 5% raise to keep them on par with the Los Angeles and Chicago orchestras, the only two earning more than San Francisco.

    The musicians, who, on average earn about $141,000 a year and are the third-highest paid in the country (next to Los Angeles and Chicago) are expected to return to Davies Symphony Hall on Tuesday, for an 11:30 a.m. show for children. That will follow with a weeklong string of concerts for first and second graders.

    The rest of the concerts scheduled this week will also take place as planned. See the full list here.
