Philadelphia Orchestra extends contract with CEO - for four more weeks

The Philadelphia Orchestra Association and CEO Allison B. Vulgamore have once again asked for an extension on the terms of her current contract for a few weeks while talks over a new contract continue.

Vulgamore and the orchestra "are in the process of finalizing an amended contract," according to a Monday filing seeking approval from U.S. Bankruptcy Court, and in the meantime seek to extend the terms of her current contract through Feb. 29. If approved, this would be the second one-month extension on her current deal.

Vulgamore was hired by the orchestra, with a two-year contract, in Jan. 2010.
