State Of Employment Poll & Review August 10 – 16 

State Of Employment Poll & Review August 10 – 16

After 18 weeks of tracking responses, the ratio of overall under-employed and unemployed statuses among orchestra stakeholder groups continues to increase. Weekly Report Responses from Administrators continue to show a migration from those indicating being furloughed to fully laid off. The percentage of respondents indicating they are still working and being paid at regular full or part time rate is only 17 percent. Those working at reduced hours and pay comprise 30 ...

#TBT Modifiers Matter 

#TBT Modifiers Matter

Granted, today’s #TBT post is only a few months old but the most recent batch of cancellation notices arriving in my inbox indicate we could all use take a breath and remember that modifiers matter. There are still far too many instances of adjectives and adverbs that project a defeatist attitude when messages should gravitate toward messages of hope and/or confidence. Choose Your Modifiers Carefully

When It Comes To Diversity, Are We Just Churning Butter With A Toothpick? 

When It Comes To Diversity, Are We Just Churning Butter With A Toothpick?

I keep meaning to find time to write something on the topic of diversity and representation in response to an article on that subject by Anthony Tommasini in the 7/16/2020 edition of the New York Times. In a nutshell, Tommasini attempts to support the conclusion that diversity on-stage can be improved if orchestras abandon screened auditions. It fails to stick a landing thanks in large part because screened auditions don’t have ...

Recently, Joe Patti published an article at ArtsHacker that examines a COVID-19 reopening guide from the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE), the union which has members working in performing arts venues, convention centers, movies, and television productions. If you work in an environment that employs IATSE members, it is worth reviewing the guidelines to get a sense of what the union expects working conditions to look like. Granted, these ...

State Of Employment Poll & Review August 3 – 9 

State Of Employment Poll & Review August 3 – 9

Following last week’s increase in overall under-employed and unemployed statuses, responses remained steady at those new levels. Weekly Report Responses from Administrators continue to show a migration from those indicating being furloughed to fully laid off. The only real uptick this last week was the increase in those working at reduced hours and pay. Salaried musicians maintained saw zero responses from respondents being paid regular salary and benefits and a small increase ...

Not Everyone Is Cancelling 

Not Everyone Is Cancelling

There’s nothing quite like a topic grenade to round out the week. Today’s entry comes from Fort Worth where the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra (FWSO) recently announced they intend to produce live, indoor concert events in the fall with heavily reduced audiences and strict social distancing rules. Before anyone decided to jump on the pro/con bandwagon, think back to June when we looked at efforts underway at the Dallas Symphony to ...

Indianapolis Cancels Season One Month Before Labor Agreement Expires 

Indianapolis Cancels Season One Month Before Labor Agreement Expires

Less than a month after public discord over growing labor disputes, the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra (ISO) announced it is cancelling the 20-21 “indoor” season. The press statement isn’t available on the ISO’s website, rather, it was published via several media outlets. Of interest in the statement is the following passage: We will also be meeting to discuss how the musicians will be supported in the interim, with a priority on providing ...

Need To Hide Some Videos? 

Need To Hide Some Videos?

Now that it looks like shutdowns are going to continue, groups have started to look for ways to offer video content in a protected format. Setting aside the much larger issue of connecting access to monetization, one of the initial challenges is how to limit where a protected video can be embedded then limit access to that page where that video lives. If you’re a WordPress user, the answer is fairly ...

A Glimpse Into Alt Performance Activity During The Pandemic 

A Glimpse Into Alt Performance Activity During The Pandemic

There’s a thought-provoking article by Jim Farber in the 7/14/2020 edition of sfcv.org of his review of the Mainly Mozart festivals performance via drive in movie facility. The location checks off all the boxes needed to satisfy patron health and safety concerns while simultaneously providing its own set of unique logistical challenges. What’s particularly interesting is in addition to utilizing the drive-in’s native radio frequency Mainly Mozart opted to use sound ...
