Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra in the Red Again

The Pittsburgh Symphony is budgeting a deficit of almost $900,000 for the coming fiscal year. And it looks as if that budget gap could be greater if they don't get all of the $1.25 million that they're requesting from a county agency that redistributes the proceeds of a 1% sales tax to arts and culture organizations.

This will be the third year in a row that they orchestra posted a deficit.

The orchestra just finished up performances at a festival in Quebec.
