Today’s #TBT is really a prelude to tomorrow’s post about one of the dynamic ways recent changes to the tax code will impact the field of nonprofit orchestras.
In order to get the most out of that post, it will help to have a broader understanding of how orchestras, as employers, offload what are normally costs of doing business onto employees.
In its own ironic way, the field has been a century ahead of what we now call the “sharing economy.” In case you’re not certain, that’s not a good thing. But more on that tomorrow. In the interim, take some time to learn more about this in a post from March 2017 about the costs of instrument ownership.
You can follow that up by learning more about how certain musicians are able to push back against this trend by way of individual agreements.
