The Florida Philharmonic prepares to go out of business. “The Philharmonic changed the locks on its rehearsal hall Wednesday and faxed a legal notice to the governor’s office and mayors of the municipalities where it performs, advising officials of its intention to file for bankruptcy. That notice stated that the Philharmonic “has developed plans to permanently shut down” and that “employment separations are expected to commence on or about May 9.”
