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!
