Florida Phil Seeks More Time To Resurrect

“The uncertain saga of the Florida Philharmonic goes into federal bankruptcy court this morning, where the musicians union is expected to give its permission for a group of reorganizers to continue its efforts to raise money and generate community support in its bid to bring the orchestra back to life.” There has been no shortage of energy from the volunteer choristers who have been trying to save the orchestra from extinction, but they have yet to raise anywhere near the amount of money they need, and there just doesn’t seem to be a whole lot of community support for the ensemble, which collapsed this spring under a weight of ugly debt.
