Your material re: wage info is hopelessly outdated.

For example, the DSO has had a 52 week season since the mid-60's. This chart
indicated a concessionary year in which management had the right to lay us off
for a few weeks. That, thankfully, is long past. (Right now, we're actually
in the midst of a 53 week season!).

There is a new -- and current -- AFM wage chart available. Perhaps you can
glean better conclusions from that?

Also, there are actually over 40 major orchestras, as defined by ICSOM. What
makes an orchestra full-time, of course, is subject to one's interpretation.

Seattle, by the way, is not an AF ofM orchestra, so it is not included.
