DENVER (CBS4) – The Colorado Symphony is in the middle of a cash crisis and some people say the very future of the orchestra is in doubt.

The past few weeks have seen negotiations and maneuvering within the symphony to keep itself afloat.

CBS4 Critic at Large Greg Moody reported on the latest on the situation facing the symphony.

“The tough economic times have shattered the fine arts. Corporate giving is down. Tickets are harder to sell — all making it tougher to juggle costs and revenue deficits each season,” Moody said. “So what’s an orchestra to do? Simple. Either find a way — or shut the door.”

    The Colorado Symphony is excellent and world class. PLEASE buy tickets, that helps A LOT. They do a lot of pops stuff its not all Mozart, etc. Fun for the entire family, go once and you’ll love it. Going this friday night to a piano concerto “The Planets” and they will be showing pictures of the stars recently taken.

    It’s actually eaeisr than you’d think. Start with the fact that a great deal of news happens on a regular schedule. The City Council meets on Monday. The local baseball team plays on certain days. The election will be on Nov. 6. A study on crime will be issued in two months. And so on.There is also a public relations machine out there to alert the media when something happens. Company has record earnings? Gotta tell the business section. And so on.So we start with that. Then, it’s a matter of manpower. Just having a body at events often leads to news he or she will hear about something, ask some questions, and a story results. Tips do happen every once in a while, and readers come up with ideas that are useful, but mostly the reporters do the thinking for themselves.
