Frequently Asked Questions...

Is playing for a major symphony orchestra a full time job?

Suppose Amy is hired to play Violin for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Will she spend 40, 50+ hours a week working, rehearsing or performing with the CSO? Or, will she have to supplement her income by teaching, or even working an 8 - 5 jobs like the rest of us?

BQ: I once had a professor who said violinists were the biggest diva. Is this true? I find the cello to be a much more pleasant sounding instrument.

Best Answer...


If Amy is hired for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Amy will have a salary of approximately between $90,000.oo to $114,000.oo per annum. That is pay for very full time work, and also screams no needing to supplement income for pin money.

If Amy is hired for The Dubuque Philharmonic Orchestra, with its much lower budget, and much shorter running season, Amy would be well to think of supplementing that income with private students, and finding some kind of full time work in the summer, perhaps teaching at a music camp, etc.

Best regards.

Your other question, sorry, is silly. Diva used to mean, specifically, a female opera singer of great technical ability, whose musicianship was outstanding and who also possessed a remarkable charisma when on stage. Now it is used for anyone who gives spoiled brat 'I'm special' attitude... and it has really seriously lost its former meaning. If your teacher meant the violins often enough carry the melody, they did not do the world of music education or music literature much justice, I'm afraid.
