Breaking: Chicago to lose an orchestramain
Just in from our associates at Chicago Classical Review:
Chamber orchestra Ars Viva’s season-closing concert next month will be its final performance.
Music director Alan Heatherington made the announcement at Sunday’s Ars Viva concert at the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts in Skokie.
Gayle Heatherington, Ars Viva excutive director, said Monday morning that the ensemble was in “excellent financial health” with record subscription and single ticket sales and that the decision to draw the curtain was purely “a personal one.”
