San Francisco Symphony Threatens to Strike

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.

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.

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.
