The Atlanta Symphony Lockout Continues

    Atlanta Symphony Orchestra is suppose to open its 70th season this week but has been locked out of their workplace since September 7th because of contract issues. Management is standing firm. Stanley Romanstein, CEO of the Atlanta Symphony since 2010, says the orchestra especially needs to change a health insurance plan that, up until now, has cost each musician only 10 dollars per week to cover an entire family. “We are struggling to find an appropriate balance between truly great art and responsible finance, and we’ve not yet found a way to do that,” Romanstein says. The musicians have taken to picketing outside of their venue on Peachtree Street.
