HARTFORD — The musicians with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra have voted to accept a wage concession agreement that management said was necessary to save the orchestra.

Steve Wade, an oboist with the symphony, said Monday night that the vote to accept the agreement followed hours of discussion by musicians on Sunday. The musicians union notified Jeffrey Verney, chairman of the symphony's board of directors, and Carolyn Kuan, the music director and conductor, on Monday, Wade said.

"The board of directors has to vote on it tomorrow," Wade said Monday night. The board has a meeting scheduled for Tuesday. "If they vote to agree to it then we have a new agreement," Wade said.
