Drew McManus, the brainchild behind the Adaptistration empire, has recently released compensation reports of many kinds – a valuable service to the industry – the two that most interest me being the salaries for ICSOM concertmasters and music directors.

I’ll cut to the chase, since you and I both want to know who is the highest paid in each category, drum roll please!

Concertmaster: Bill Preucil, Cleveland Orchestra: $478,000 (up nearly 21% from last year!)

Music Director: Lorin Maazel, New York Philharmonic: $2,834,745 (gulp!)

I’m in the wrong segment of the orchestra business, I guess…
