Time is running out for the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. After sacking its British boss Simon Crookall in February and six more executives in July, the Indy now plans to cut its players’ contracts from 52 weeks to 36 a year, a 30 percent reduction, and reducing the playing force from 87 to 63.
The players’ contract ends next week and the orch joins several others on Skid Row. It is, or was, one of 17 US full-time orchs. All the latest here.
