According to an article published by The Oregonian, musicians of the Portland based Oregon Symphony agreed to give up $315,000 in pay, in order to balance the budget by June 30. ‘The Oregonian’ reports: « Faced with a budget gap foreseen last October, symphony officials asked the musicians to waive their annual, end-of-season payment, the equivalent of two-and a half weeks of salary. In addition to losing the pay bump, the musicians agreed to waive a 2.6 percent  salary increase for next season, shaving $80,000 off next season’s expenses. »

The Oregon Symphony’s 2013/14 season comprises a total of 71 performances for 41 productions. The Orchestra’s Music Director is Carlos Kalmar.
