Boston Symphony Orchestra Lays Off 50 Staff Members

The organization estimated a loss of over $35 million due to cancelled performances during the 2019-2020 season and the Tanglewood Festival summer season

This week, the Boston Symphony Orchestra laid off 50 full-time administrative staff members, due to the ongoing economic effects of the Coronavirus pandemic.
“It is with a heavy heart that we have made some difficult decisions about reducing the organization’s workforce during this unprecedented time of concert cancellations and revenue loss associated with COVID-19," Orchestra President and CEO, Mark Volpe said.
“Through this difficult time and the many challenges ahead, we are determined to re-establish the concert-going experience that has inspired generations of audiences to make the BSO an essential and inspiring part of their lives," he said.
