Denver (AP) The Colorado Symphony Orchestra's 79 full-time musicians have agreed to a one-week unpaid vacation in March.

And about 30 administrative staff members have agreed to a temporary suspension of contributions to employees' retirement plans.

Interim Symphony President Cliff Gardiner says the orchestra is trying to cover a roughly 15 percent drop in ticket revenues for the fiscal year and a similar drop in charitable contributions.

Gardiner says stagehands have pledged to participate in the cost-cutting effort in a similar way. The orchestra also is looking at programming for the coming season, and it's possible some events could be dropped.
