Updated 1/11 6 p.m. with contract agreement.

The San Antonio Symphony is close to reaching an agreement with the musicians' union on a contract to finish out the 2018 season, said union representative Craig Sorgi on Thursday. The new contract is "largely an extension of the existing one, but with a few minor tweaks," he said. Part of the new contract allows the use of social media and streaming video of symphony performances as part of its marketing strategy to reach a younger audience, he said.
