…thank you for taking a moment to stop by and I hope you enjoy your time here. The 2008 Orchestra Compensation Reports mentioned in the article by Charles Storch are scheduled for publication between Monday, June 2nd and Friday, June 6th (with a bonus "subscribers only" article on Saturday, June 7th). If the Orchestra Compensation Reports are new to you, you should know that they are a series of articles published in June of each year that examine the compensation details and trends among orchestra executives, music directors, concertmasters, and base musicians at 76 professional U.S. symphonic and chamber orchestras.
Each year, the articles garner a terrific amount of productive discussion on the nature of nonprofit compensation and the trends from one year to the next. You can read more about the compensation articles as well as access an index to past reports at the Orchestra Compensation Report index page. Likewise, you will find information about the print edition of the reports which contains compensation data for several additional seasons, dating back to the 1999/00 season.
