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.
