This is a real case of trying to turn lemons into lemonade!

The Philadelphia Orchesta is seeking Chapter 11 bankruptcy, due to financial struggles stemming from fewer donations, shrinking endowment income, pension costs and rent prices.

But in an attempt to keep the group afloat, officials have announced that they'll be kicking off a new campaign called the Listen With Your Heart initiative in order to raise awareness and money, and will be hosting public events for fundraising and outreach in downtown Philly restaurants, hotels, and shops!

Wonderful! We sincerely hope that every music lover and supporter of the arts in the area will do their part!

It is SUCH an important cause!

Fingers crossed for you guys! Hang in there!

Sad! Philadelphia Orchestra Files For Bankruptcy!

philadelphia orchestra files for bankruptcy

Hopefully they can figure something out!

The world-famous Philadelphia Orchestra has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy after running into tough times.

Here's what Board chairman Richard Worley had to say about the decision:

"We're running low on cash, we're running a deficit, and we have to put ourselves in a position to attract investment funds to help us."

And here's what chairman of the members committee John Koen had to say about it:

"It was a terrible letdown. I think this is a tragic decision for the orchestra."

"A big orchestra has never done this before. It's impossible for the musicians not to feel betrayed by the board of directors … It feels like a vote of no confidence for the future of this orchestra that's been around for 111 years and world famous for 99 of those years at least."

More from principal oboe Richard Woodhams:

"We're in a state of shock, really. I think it's a very, very sad day for culture in the United States and the world."

Many orchestra musicians are upset with this decision, and there is def animosity towards the management, following recent pay cut talks during contract negotiations.

We truly hope this doesn't mark the beginning of the end for the Philadelphia Orchestra.

Very, very sad.

Real Housewives Of New York City Star Files For Bankruptcy!

Another bankrupt housewife?! You don't say!

The Real Housewives of New York City's Sonja Tremont-Morgan filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection this morning, claiming $19.8 million in debt and $13.5 million in assets!

According to a statement in the court papers, she explains:

“The decision to seek bankruptcy relief was not an easy one, but unfortunately, I am at a crossroads in my life."

The papers also blame her financial problems on a lawsuit filed against her by Hannibal Pictures, Inc.

She and her production company, Sonja Productions, made a deal to produce a film starring John Travolta called Fast Flash To Bang Time, but the project never got off the ground because she couldn't meet the "various conditions" that the actor demanded, so Hannibal pressed charges against her, and subsequently won $7 million.

Eek!

Well, at least she's still a part of the Housewives franchise, and can use those opportunities to make some money back!

Times are tough, bb!

But at least you're being honest about it, unlike Teresa Giudice and Michaele Salahi some of the other bankrupt Housewives past!
