The musicians of the Atlanta Symphony want to let you know that we have every intention of continuing TDP lessons and ASYO auditions and rehearsals.
As many of you may have heard through the media, we were locked out of the Woodruff Arts Center (WAC) on August 26. We have been unable to enter the
facilities or take part in anything related to the ASO. We are not receiving
paychecks, and our health, dental and disability insurance was terminated as
of September 1.
While we are disturbed by the unwillingness of the Woodruff Arts Center to
work on reaching a reasonable agreement with us, we don't want this to
affect your musical experiences more than necessary. The musicians plan to
proceed with the ASYO auditions but plan to hold them in an alternate
location due to the fact that we are locked out and therefore unable to use
Please stay tuned as we gather symphony musicians and volunteers to organize
and carry through with your previously scheduled auditions. The volunteer
work of parents has always been incredibly valuable to the success of these
programs, and that will be even more true under the present circumstances.
TDP students, please continue to work with your individual teachers to
schedule lessons for the TDP program.
Thank you very much.
The ATL Symphony Musicians
