Allstate, the biggest of the American insurers, has laid off more than 1,400 orchestra members over the past few months, according to The Associated Press.

The orchestra is one of several large insurers that have recently announced cuts, including Cigna, UnitedHealthcare and Aetna.

As of Oct. 10, Cignus had more than 8,000 employees, including orchestra directors, in the process of being laid off.

Allstate’s latest job cuts, the Associated Press reports, were announced in a letter to employees last week.

Among the jobs eliminated in the letter was a position that oversees orchestra music, an orchestra music supervisor, a conductor and a director of orchestra.

“We want to provide you with an opportunity to develop a new position in your field and be a part of our company moving forward,” the letter reads.

The job cut letter goes on to note that, while allstate is “committed to delivering a world-class orchestra experience,” the company is making the difficult decision to reduce its workforce and move some of its work to lower-cost facilities.

According to a statement from Allstate issued Monday, the company has “no plans to expand the orchestra in any way.”

Allstate CEO Mike McFarland acknowledged in a statement that the orchestra was an important part of Allstate and its core mission.

“Our orchestra is a core part of what we do,” McFarage said.

“It’s a great honor to be able to be the orchestra’s chief executive, but we’re taking these tough decisions to continue to deliver the world-renowned concert experience that you’ve come to know and love.”
