OLD/CURRENT BUSINESS:

I. President’s Report

  • Pete Wagner’s group will perform at the Labor Day Picnic at Coney Island. Tickets will be available and an email will be sent to the membership with information.
  • There was a membership issue with a player recently expelled from the Dayton Local. They were contracted to play with the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra. The member caught up their arrears and is now in god standing with Dayton.
  • After considerable discussion and input from legal counsel the CSO management will pay overtime for Lumenocity and musicians will waive any overtime for Pops concerts for this season only. This agreement preserves the process of being able to work things out.
  • Taft Museum concert dates have been finalized. It is possible the CCO members could participate with some of the performances.

II. CSO

  • Walt Zeschin has announced he is leaving the position of Orchestra Personnel Manager to take a position with the Utah Symphony. Although a lateral move it puts him closer to family. His last day will be October 23. There are no musicians on the search committee but should be involved in the final process.

III. CCO

  • The ballot box will be going to the Chamber Orchestra for votes on the IMA ratification. President Frankenfeld was present at rehearsal to answer any questions.

NEW BUSINESS:

I. Josh Groban Riverbend concert

  • Carl Larson contracted for the performance and involved non-union players. Since Riverbend is a closed union house President Frankenfeld will be contacting Larson as well as alerting Locals that may be impacted by the Groban tour.
