A local arts institution will stay on the sidelines for the 2012-2013 season with plans to return in a year.
The Delaware Symphony Orchestra has decided to suspend its 2012-2013 season so it can conduct an analysis of its finances and come up with a new business model to help it go forward in the future.
Chairwoman of the DSO board Ann Hamilton says the recent financial downturn has made it difficult for the orchestra to sustain its programming.
Now, a team comprised of several Board members plus DSO executive director Lee Williamson and Maestro David Amado will try to figure out a new business model that will allow the orchestra to continue in the future.
In addition, a new Board of Directors will be installed to provide fresh leadership and perspective.
