Grounded, Yet Flying High: Conductor Rossen Milanov

Rossen Milanov

Rossen Milanov on Crossover w/Jill Pasternak, October 12, 2013

Rossen Milanov is a busy man of the world.  The miles he racks up, both driving and flying, are great.  Just look at his schedule from now through the first week in December: the Colorado Symphony in Denver, the Fort Worth Symphony in Texas, the Princeton Symphony in New Jersey, the Latvian National Symphony in Latvia, the Orchesta Sinfonica del Principado de Asturias in Spain, the Aalborg Symphony in Denmark, and finally back home to lead Camden's Symphony in C.  It's almost as though Alec Baldwin is about to come up and ask him, "What's in your wallet?"

Symphony In C Bucks Downward Trend For Regional Orchestras

Rossen Milanov is music director of Symphony in C.

In recent times, Philadelphians have been made well aware of the fiscal challenges of sustaining a symphony orchestra. Now, around the country, other cities are experiencing such problems first hand. Serious doubts hang over the immediate viability of orchestras in Atlanta, Minnesota, St Paul, Indianapolis, and San Antonio with others likely to soon follow suit. 

Yet in Camden, New Jersey, a city whose very municipal infrastructure is under threat, its orchestra - Symphony In C - continues to garner and grow support, audience, and reputation.
