Philly Orchestra remains magnificent despite filing for bankruptcy

The New Yorker has taken notice of the Philadelphia Orchestra’s recent bankruptcy filing, noting in the magazine’s May 2nd edition that “though the board of the Philadelphia Orchestra has decided to declare bankruptcy, the ensemble remains its magnificent self. At Carnegie Hall, Charles Dutoit, its chief conductor, leads its musicians in Stravinsky’s “Oedipus Rex” and “Apollon Musagete.”

I will post reviews when available. Hopefully they will be good. It reminds me of the old joke, “how do you get to Carnegie Hall? Practice, practice, practice!”

Here in North Andover we practice bankruptcy law, building up expertise over the last seventeen years.

Update:Here is the New York Times review of the Philadelphia orchestra’s Carnegie Hall concert. Looks like they pulled it off with flying colors!
