Hi I hope this is an appropriate place for this type of thread. I'm wondering what the customary wage is for people who play in a city's symphony/orchestra. I checked out the Louisville Orchestra's page and found that the position open for 5th Viola pays $900 a week with full benefits and vacation! Is this about average, or higher or lower than average? With a full family and a mortgage payment to make each month, a symphony gig would help make ends meet a whole lot better when combined with a teaching job or something. thanks in advance.
