New from SymphonyNOW: Turnaround in Columbus

Posted on: November 4, 2011

Things have changed a lot at the Columbus Symphony over the past two years. Once facing a $1.5 million deficit with no operating reserves and no line of credit, the organization now seems to have righted the ship through a partnership with the Columbus Association for the Performing Arts (CAPA) that saves an annual $750,000 in operating costs. Three administrators and a symphony musician talk about how the organization is seeking to chart a new course.

This week’s SymphonyNOW also spotlights the recent “invasion” of cellists playing Bach at Brooklyn, New York’s PS 321, part of the Neighborhood Classics series, and the National Youth Orchestra of Iraq’s recent trip to Bonn, Germany for Beethovenfest.

SymphonyNOW is the League’s new, online-only publication that provides timely stories about orchestras on a weekly basis. You’ll find SymphonyNOW just to the right-hand side here on the Hub homepage.
