Musicians of the Pasadena Symphony deserve fair treatment

This petition had 1 supporter

Musicians deserve respect and fair treatment, just like all workers. 

Nine years ago, when the Pasadena Symphony faced financial uncertainty, the musicians did everything possible to ensure their orchestra’s survival: absorbing cost-saving cuts, forgoing raises, even playing free concerts.

Now, nearly a decade after the crisis, these professional musicians are resolved to reach an agreement that reflects the restoration of their orchestra. Among their chief aims, musicians are asking for pay equal to that of other comparable symphonies in Los Angeles; they are asking for a voice in the planning process for programming and repertoire; and they are pushing to restore the orchestra to its former size and rehearsal regimen.

Musicians of the Pasadena Symphony Orchestra are committed to forging new and better relationships with people in our communities in Pasadena, Los Angeles County, California, and the world. We acknowledge our responsibility to our community and are determined to continue to lead with a clear and strong vision for the future. It is our promise that we will continue grow and lead the country in creativity, innovation, and education, just as Pasadena serves as a major center for business and art.
