Miami City Ballet Has New Contractor
This coming season, Tim Devine will be contracting the orchestra for Miami City Ballet. We have spoken to Tim several times and have been assured that the Ballet will continue to pay scale and pension under a local engagement contract, as they have done in the past. The Ballet will be using orchestra for four programs this season, and has also announced that they have funding in place for live orchestra for all four programs for the following season as well. We salute the Ballet and their donors for recognizing the difference that live music makes to the Ballet.
