The Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra (NY) announced Saturday that a six-year agreement with the orchestra’s musicians has been reached, the longest in the orchestra’s history. The new contract provides for wage increases totalling 12.6 percent from the current $48,120 to $54,177 in 2022.

“I applaud the exemplary vision of our BPO musicians, which bespeaks their profound commitment to our community and their inspiring dedication to our audiences,” BPO Music Director JoAnn Falletta said in a statement. “Not only is this six-year agreement unprecedented, it ensures that we can strategize and plan for the future together, and continue to provide the highest level of artistic excellence to Buffalo and Western New York.”
