In a bold step forward to encourage and support the future of the arts, The Miami Symphony Orchestra managed to accomplish what only a small group of arts organizations have done. They honored the full payment of all the contractual commitments to its musicians for the 2019-2020 season.
The decision originated in the board of directors as a token of their pledge to the community. They stated that "the Miami Symphony Orchestra believes that we create the future with today's actions. Therefore, in the face of adversity, we are called to prioritize what matters most in our lives: our people."
A passionate supporter of this decision, MISO's Music Director and Conductor Eduardo Marturet said that thanks to actions like this, "we will stand together and continue using the power of music to overcome this crisis stronger than ever.”
