Re: “The Charleston Symphony Orchestra is in peril — yet again

Quick question- did the players have benefits, like health? Not that this is any excuse for the low pay and the way they have been treated, but benefits are helpful. In my regular old job, I pay a portion of my health insurance (about 1/4 of the monthly premium) but the company pays for the rest which over a year is a huge chunk for me alone and something not often thought of when discussing these types of issues. If they did have health benefits, what has happened to them now that operations have ceased? This might not just affect the players but their families as well.

My best wishes to the players of the orchestra, and to the city of Charleston. I hope something can be worked out, and if it is, that the city and patrons can look past the troubles and step back on board to support the orchestra by buying tickets and through donations.
