Oregon Symphony layoffs -- ugh!

The Oregonian reported that pert near everyone at the Oregon Symphony has been laid off because of the corona virus. You can read the awful story here.

Also, Scott Showalter, President and CEO of the orchestra, has made a special appeal to Governor Brown, which is posted on the orchestra's home page here. Because of the cancellation of the season, the orchestra is facing a devestating $5 million deficit. This is really awful news. I am sincerely hoping that the orchestra survives.
