St. Louis Symphony Orchestra Cancels Spring Performances

The ensemble suspended the concert programming it had previously planned for the Spring 2021 season

Based on guidance from St. Louis city officials and Washington University's School of Medicine, the decision is due to the ongoing spread of the Covid-19 virus. 32 performances were originally scheduled through to May, 2021.

Also this week, the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra came to an agreement with its musicians to change the current contract, effective January 11th through August 29th, 2021.

The musicians agreed to $3.75 million in compensation reduction, retaining 85% of their base pay and 80% of other compensation.

"The Board and management greatly appreciate the sacrifices made by SLSO orchestra membership to maintain and support the financial health of the organization and recognize the genuine collaborative spirit all parties brought to the process," said Steven Finerty, Chair of the SLSO Board of Trustees. "We look forward to emerging from the pandemic as a healthy institution on all fronts and are eager to welcome patrons back to Powell Hall to enjoy experiencing music with our world-class SLSO."

"The musicians of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra are grateful for the outstanding support of the Board of Trustees and our donor community during this challenging time," Timothy Myers, Chair of the Orchestra Negotiation Committee and Principal Trombonist for the SLSO. "This agreement reflects the orchestra's commitment to continuing our performance and outreach activities during the pandemic."
