Shreveport Symphony Orchestra board and musicians have set aside differences to produce 3 concerts in 2010.
SSO board president Dick Bremer, musician leader Rick Rowell and Community Fund chief Paula Hickman announced the interim agreement and concert series.
- Michael Butterman remains an active player in the re-tuning, said Bremer.
- The SSO has a current budget of about $110,000, added Bremer. The annual budget for the SSO at its peak was about $1.3 million.
- The Community Foundation has awarded the SSO a $70,000 challenge grant. Its purpose is to stimulate additional monetary pledges.
- Orchestra consultant Doug Patti - well-received by both musicians and board - will help guide the effort.
