Classic Arts News   Utah Symphony & Opera Management, Musicians Reach Agreement
 
The Utah Symphony and Opera management and its musicians have agreed to a three-year contract, reports the Deseret Morning News. Details were not given.

Management is likely to submit the proposal to the US&O excutive board for ratification early next week.

Musicians' union lawyer Joe Hatch told The Salt Lake Tribune that the agreement includes good changes on working conditions and a raise that's "good enough for one year, but not a great one."

The musicians, whose previous contract expired August 31, recently turned down an offer management termed as its "last, best and final."

The US&O opens its new season tonight, performing Holst's The Planets and Beethoven's Concerto No. 5 with soloist André Watts.
