The Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra announced a new two-year collective bargaining agreement for the ensemble’s 34 musicians. Included are 2 percent salary increases in each year of the contract and increased rehearsal time for select programming. “We are delighted to have reached this new Agreement with our Musicians, in time to kick off the ICO’s concert season,” said Ann Colussi Dee, president of the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra’s Board of Directors. “The 2016-2017 concert season is the first that is completely planned by Music Director Matthew Kraemer, who joined the ICO last year and has made a significant impact on the Orchestra and our community. Having the contract in place at this time provides continued financial and artistic stability for our entire organization.” The orchestra opens its concert season on October 8, and also operates educational programs including the FUNtastic Classics and in-school Artist Residencies.
