It sounds like the main problem is that the players were being paid more than they should have been, given the revenue of the respective venues, and the expenses of travel, promotion, and administration. If that's not the case, then all the players need to do is explain how the budget should be drawn up allowing for their current pay. Simple.

They should be paid in accordance with what their patrons are willing to support. No more, no less.

The patrons are willing to support the musicians. The Boards aren't. Why is that??

@regionguy...I know it's common to assume that the truth lies somewhere in the middle of two opposing viewpoints. If both sides were merely posturing, I'd agree they should knock it off and talk. But...one side changes mission statements on a whim, gives (at best) misleading information to legislators, provides no opportunity for patron feedback on their website, and pays their CEO over 400K. The other side has been locked out, all through the holidays.
