For this weekend's end-of-the-season program, the CSO is offering seats at whatever price someone is willing to pay for them, with a minimum offer of only $1!

A nice story in today's Denver Post about saving the Colorado Symphony Orchestra:

Just seven months ago, the CSO was poison — so toxic that 20 trustees made an angry and abrupt exit when a move to make players part-time failed. Now it is re-emerging as something everyone wants a taste of.

Venues across the region are eager to book it; a reconstructed board is drawing prominent names; and the orchestra has added considerably to the number and type of concerts it will perform starting July 4 with its summer session.


I wonder if this might signal the future needed for other performing arts groups to survive.

Today (June 25), the CSO announced that they have signed former Dallas Symphony music director Andrew Litton to the role of "artistic advisor". This role apparently means that Litton will fulfill most of the duties of a music director, such as approving all the programming, but will only conduct a limited number of programs (probably 3 in the 2012-13 season). IMHO, this is good news as now there will be an internationally-known conductor affiliated with the CSO.
