Louisville Orchestra Makes Payroll This Week, Thanks to Secret Donor

WFPL in Louisville noted yesterday that a donatation from an anonymous source helped the Louisville Orchestra to pay its musicians. Last week, it looked as if the group wouldn't make payroll and was even possibly moving toward bankruptcy.

This is a sad fall for an orchestra that once had done so much for new music in the US. As late as the summer, it looked as if the orchestra management and board was working on a plan to turn the Louisville Orchestra around.
