The orchestra has reported a $650,000 deficit for the past year, which included the end of the lockout and a scrambled-together concert season. It has been expecting losses of $1m.

The orch has received a $10 million gift from an anonymous philanthropist and $3.2m from three other friends. Details here.

  • Russell Platt says:

    I concur.

  • Pamela Brown says:

    Wonder why one or more of those flush patrons who nonchalantly wrote large checks to send the MO across the pond prior to the lockout couldn’t easily offset this loss…
