The Nashville Symphony and its Musicians Association have announced the ratification of a new, four-year contract that will go into effect on August 1. The new agreement provides for a 3.5 percent increase to the musicians’ base salaries for the 2018-19 season, as well as increases of 3.75 percent for the 2019-20 season and 4.25 percent for each of the following two seasons. The contract also restores a previously unfilled first violin position in the first year of the agreement and a previously unfilled cello position in the second year, bringing the orchestra’s total membership back to 83.

In 2013, the Nashville Symphony was greatly endangered, but since then, it has largely improved its financial situation.
