As the old, established American symphony orchestras become increasingly intent on pricing themselves out of the recording market, a few of what were once considered provincial orchestras are being actively courted. Not by the old, established labels but by the nouveau likes of Los Angeles-based Delos, whose existence is centered on the Seattle Symphony Orchestra under music director Gerard Schwarz.

Lois Arthur's Feb. 3 letter regarding the "compromises" and lack of "coffee and cookies" at the Orange County Performing Arts Center made interesting reading. Mrs. Arthur stated she has "suffered midweek scheduling" at the Center. But in reviewing the 1989/1990 Orange County Philharmonic Society Great Orchestra Series schedule, 75% of the concerts are on weekends. Also, one third of the International Artists and Virtuoso series concerts are scheduled for weekends. At the Music Center, the Los Angeles Philharmonic has scheduled only 72% of its concerts for weekends.

If Pierre Boulez has his way--and he often does--the concert hall of the future will be a place to spend a weekend day. "Right now, an orchestra is like a restaurant," said Boulez, perhaps the 20th century's most formidable and influential composer-conductor-administrator. "It opens at 8, closes at 10, and what happens the rest of the time is of no interest to the public. But people should be able to come and spend the whole day, the way they do in a museum."

For an indication of what Boeing Co. is like as a corporate citizen, consider the concert hall rising up from a block-size cavity in downtown Seattle. Not only did Boeing plunk down $3 million in cash to help build the new home for the Seattle Symphony Orchestra, it also loaned an executive to serve as project director at the construction site. As an employer, too, Boeing is generous. It pays well, offers good benefits and makes all the right noises about partnering with workers.
