An anonymous donor has offered to pay the cost of hiring a consultant to help the Louisville Orchestra’s impasse with its musicians. Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer said the consultant will hopefully have national experience, and will work with the mediator involved in the negotiations to help the musicians reach a new collective bargaining agreement.

Fisher said, “I strongly encourage both sides to take advantage of this opportunity.

My hope is that a sustainable financial artistic solution can be achieved.”
