Salem Chamber Orchestra on the rocks - financially
In today's edition, the Statesman Journal reports that the board of the Salem Chamber Orchestra has decided to cancel the remainder of its season because of financial problems. The 31-year-old orchestra has been struggling to make its $180,000 operating budget. The ensemble, under its music director Nicholas Caoile had planned a very interesting season, including violinist Lara St. John and a special appearance by composer John Corigilano at its next concert in November. So this is very disappointing news.
