Louisville Orchestra musicians voted to return to work under a bridge contract that allows for binding arbitration, a reduction to 57 orchestra members, and a compromise on sick leave and vacation leave. Orchestra committee chair Kim Tichenor said that the agreement would not have been possible without the efforts of Louisville Metro Council President Jim King. With oversight by King, the musicians will work with Louisville Orchestra, Inc. to find a mutually acceptable, nationally recognized consultant who will oversee operations and make recommendations on a longer contract, as well as about future orchestra initiatives and management policies. A 30-week season is due to start later this year.
