The violinist serving as the Concertmaster for the Chattanooga Symphony is suing the organization for breach of contract. Holly Mulcahy filed the notice on Wednesday in Hamilton County General Sessions court.

The paperwork says the dispute involves a contract for a solo performance set for October 6th. It asks for "compensatory, incidental, consequential, and punitive damages" not to exceed $25,000.

Mulcahy's website says she has served as Concertmaster for the CSO since 2013. She writes, "It is liberating to find a supportive and energetic board along with a dedicated and very efficient management which keeps the beautiful city of Chattanooga engaged with musical excellence."

Requests for comment to Mulcahy and her attorney have not been returned. The Symphony says it hadn't seen a copy of the filing, but says, at this time, Mulcahy is still signed on as a contract musician.

The Symphony will open its upcoming season on September 26th.
