Marjorie Goldberg – Candidate for Vice-President and Alternate Delegate to the International Convention of the AFM 

 

I have been a proud member of the American Federation of Musicians since I was a student at the Hartt School of Music, which is where I first learned about the benefits of Union membership. When I moved back to Philadelphia in 1988, I became a member of Local 77. I am also a member of Local 269 in Harrisburg PA and Local 161-710 in Washington DC. I am a member of these locals because I believe strongly in the importance of representation for musicians especially when it comes to fair work practices, fair compensation, and transparent communication.

I have been involved with negotiations for the Philly Pops for three contract terms. During our latest negotiation, we took major steps towards job security and competitive pay. I am also a member of the first official player-elected Orchestra Committee since our newest contract was ratified.

I have been a member of Harrisburg Symphony viola section since 1991. I was an orchestra committee member and chairperson for three contract negotiations. While on the committee, I learned about negotiating contracts, advocating for our players, grievances, auditions and communicating with management to create a healthy and happy work environment. I am now the ROPA (Regional Orchestra Players Association) Delegate for the Harrisburg Symphony. These committee experiences have provided opportunities for me to learn as well as advocate for others.

in addition, I have  experience in many other areas of the music business. I have owned my own music school and I now teach at a private pre K-8 school, at a university and I am a teaching artist for the Philly Pops. I am also a string contractor and arranger. I pride myself on being a good communicator and a caring advocate for my colleagues, my students, my clients and the organizations for which I am involved. I am by nature an outgoing and friendly person and I like to help my friends and colleagues however I can.

As Vice-President of Local 77, I will work tirelessly, along with the other committee members, to represent you. This will include leveraging social media and the Local 77 website to keep you engaged and informed. I welcome the privilege to serve as your Vice-President.
