Honolulu Symphony Files Chapter 11
The Honolulu Advertiser quotes the symphony's executive director as saying the move was a necessary step. Last month the symphony canceled its November and December concerts putting the entire 64-member orchestra out of work. The nonprofit has also let go of all but three of a total of 22 administrative workers. In a reorganization the Symphony will have to cut costs and will downsize the orchestra in hopes of surviving to play another season.
