The Tucson Symphony Orchestra must raise at least $1 million by the end of 2009 to ensure programming beyond next season.
That’s the word from the group, 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. For details, www.tucsonsymphony.org or call 792-9155.
