The artists will no longer collect paychecks after April 3, according to an email obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

“Yesterday, after our meeting with Deborah Rutter, the Covid-19 Advisory Committee was broadcasted,” the email reads. “This is Mrs. Rutter has brusquely told us today that the last payment will arrive on April 3 for musicians and librarians, but we won’t collect pay again until the Center re-openes. “The email was sent just hours after the $2 trillion Coronavirus Funding, Aid and Economic Protection Act was signed by President Donald Trump.

Democrats put 25 million dollars in the CARES act for taxpayers ‘funds for the Kennedy Center, as they had originally announced before they gained Trump’s endorsement.

According to the Hill, “I’m a fan of that.” “Because I’m too much too tired, I didn’t waste time there. The funds were to be invested to “cover operating expenses needed to guarantee the stability of the John F. Kennedy Center for Performeing Arts and its affiliates, particularly for staff salaries and pensions, loans, contracts, leasing fees or utilities facilities. The funds were to be utilized to ensure that the John F. Kennedy Centers and its affiliates were able to afford to operate for themselves.

The e-mail added that members of the orchestra would proceed as their last April 3 search.

“It’s a shock to all of you as we get it,” read the email.

As the center was to get support from the Government, an unnamed veteran musician said to the Washington Free Beacon that the decision “blinds” musicians.

“We [are] very dishonest to get money and kill us later,” said the singer. “This is very disappointing.”

On 12 March, the Kennedy Center announced it would postpone all public concerts and activities by 31 March. The cancelations were then extended until 10 May.

Earlier this week, Rutter said that through delays, the Washington Post would forget about its $1.2 million in pay.

Rutter said, “I will be the first guy.” The Orchestra members intend to file a complaint with the Center on its recent decision. “My hope is that those circumstances don’t last, but I’ll be the realist.”

“Our collective bargaining deal does not allow for the Center Kennedy to opt to avoid paying us with just one week’s notice.” “While we are all expected to acknowledge that a judge decides that the management has broken the CBA, that it needs time to proceed.”
