BALTIMORE — The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Inc. and Musicians' Association of Metropolitan Baltimore, Local 40-543 announced that they've reached an agreement on a one-year contract.

Both sides have been negotiating for weeks. It resulted in musicians filing an unfair labor lawsuit, which has now been withdrawn.

Now, musicians will get a pay increase and the season is guaranteed for 38 weeks, plus two summer weeks which will include the BSO's Star-Spangled Spectacular at Oregon Ridge.

The agreement allows the Baltimore Symphony to open its concert season on Friday, September 27.
