Tucson Symphony says it must raise $1 million to ensure programming

The Tucson Symphony Orchestra must raise at least $1 million by the end of this year to ensure programming beyond next season.

That’s the word from the orchestra, which Thursday sent an appeal to donors and the public, saying, “We need your support now if we are to survive the economic turmoil disrupting the TSO’s successful progress on its path to financial stability.”

“Perfect storm” conditions have spurred the emergency fundraising campaign, a TSO news release states. These include a decline in contributed income and lower ticket and investment revenues.

“The TSO has cut costs as much as possible,” the release says. “It has cut administrative staff and salaries of both staff and musicians, plus has asked guest artists for fee concessions. Any more cuts will seriously threaten the orchestra and the music.”

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
