From Texas Public Radio:
The San Antonio Symphony announced it will raise the base salary for musicians by about 6% over the next three years. By 2022, the starting salary will be $35,774.
The raise was announced despite the Symphony’s decades of financial struggles. Due to recurring multi-million dollar budget deficits, musicians previously took multiple pay cuts. At times, the Symphony even dipped into its endowment and advance ticket sales to pay down debts and recoup budget deficits.
