Classic Arts News   Rochester Philharmonic Signs Musicians to One-Year Contract
 
The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra and its musicians have agreed to a one-year contract, four months after their previous contract expired, the Syracuse Post-Standard reports.

The musicians had agreed to "play and talk" while negotiations continued.

Pay is frozen under the new contract, with the minimum full-time salary staying at $36,100. The deal runs through August 31, 2005, which means that negotiations on a new contract will begin in the spring, a spokesperson told the Post-Standard.

The RPO ran a deficit of $220,000 on a budget of $8.1 million in 2003-04.
