Louisville Musicians Get Paid, Will Play Saturday

Last Friday, the musicians of the Louisville Orchestra got smaller paycheques than usual, but considering their employer is in Chapter 11 and was threatening to liquidate, it was probably good they got something. According to one report, they only got 20% of their weekly salary; they were to have gotten the remainder yesterday. In addition, the orchestra found the funds to put on their pops concert on Saturday.

Meanwhile in the blogosphere, some less-than-sympathetic online commenters to news reports about the Louisville Orchestra has prompted responses from both Tim Smith and Drew McManus.
