The Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra will perform on New Year’s Eve after approving a new four-year contract that includes modest pay raises. An anonymous donor came forward with a $700,000 gift that helps cover costs of musicians’ salaries.
The musicians have been organizing and playing community concerts as the independent Symphony Musicians of Fort Worth while on strike. Wednesday, they will vote on a tentative agreement reached with the symphony association. It’s unclear whether the FWSO’s New Year’s Eve concert will come back if the agreement is approved.
