Apparently the Cascade Festival of Music has filed for bankruptcy. David Stabler's blog has the goods on this disaster. The Portland Symphonic Choir was scheduled to sing at the festival at the end of August. With the new influx of money in the Bend area over the past decade or more, it's hard to believe that this festival would have any financial problems at all.
The Bend Bulletin newspaper just published an article about this on Friday morning. At this point the festival is $93,000 in debt.
