Detroit Symphony Orchestra
Saturday, October 23, 2004
Recently several orchestras have built themselves glorious new performance halls, like Frank Gehry’s Disney Hall in L.A. and Rafael Viñoly’s Kimmel center in Philadelphia. But even a super-duper new hall doesn’t guarantee that an orchestra will break even. Last season the Detroit Symphony inaugurated its brand-new performing arts complex called the Max M. Fisher Music Center. But, as Tamar Charney reports from Michigan Public Radio, the new space has not been a panacea for the Symphony’s financial woes.
