Calgary Cancels Christmas

Something short of a massive, wailing public outcry greeted September’s news that the Calgary Philharmonic was suspending operations, and efforts since the shutdown to revive the troubled orchestra have achieved mixed results. Now, the CPO is being forced to cancel four of its five holiday concerts, traditionally some of the ensemble’s biggest money-makers of the year. On the plus side, officials expect to unveil a full scale restructuring plan tomorrow.
