An Orchestra Success Story in Madison

Jacob Stockinger at The Well-Tempered Ear is crowing about his hometown orchestra, the Madison Symphony. Apparently, they practically sold out their holiday concerts this season, and are fiscally sound.

It's hard to compare this group to the Detroit Symphony, which has a more extensive season and a much larger budget (or did before the strike), but the energy of their marketing--which should be a statement of faith in the music and the performances--is a model everyone can follow.
