From David Cutler: The fact that many Amer­ican orches­tras struggle to survive is no secret. In the past few years, top-tier ensem­bles in Philadel­phia, Syra­cuse, Honolulu, Detroit, Louisville, Dallas, and New Mexico have cancelled concerts, issued pay cuts, declared bank­ruptcy, or closed their doors. Reversing this trend will likely require more than savvier social media use, fundraising efforts, or other one-dimen­sional potions.
