FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DELAWARE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA ANNOUNCES CLASSICAL CONCERT SERIES
Series Subscriptions and Single Tickets On Sale Now

Wilmington, Del., November 19, 2012 – The Delaware Symphony Orchestra (DSO) announced today that it will resume offering full-orchestra performances in a series of three programs that will be held in January, March, and April 2013 at The Grand Opera House in downtown Wilmington and the Laird Performing Arts Center at Tatnall School in Greenville. The series will open with Dvořák’s New World Symphony; it will close with Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony; and other works to be performed include Rachmaninoff’s first piano concerto, Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony, and Haydn’s Symphony No. 93.

“We have crafted a season that is broad and beautiful – one that celebrates great symphonic repertoire and the talent of our own DSO musicians – orchestra players and soloists,” said David Amado, DSO’s music director and conductor. “From Humperdinck’s Prelude to Hänsel and Gretel to Debussy’s Danses sacrée et profane, Dvorak’s New World to Beethoven’s Seventh, our season is filled with stellar music and musicians to match.”

“It’s a whole new world at the DSO, and our decision to open the Classical Series with the New World Symphony reflects that. We have a new season and a new plan, and we have made a number of changes that will help us better serve our patrons and help return the DSO to solid financial footing,” said Diana Milburn, DSO’s general manager. “As we continue to rebuild from the financial difficulties that emerged earlier this year, we are thrilled to be able to fill the stage and the air with the musical magic that Maestro David Amado and our musicians are so exceptional at creating.”

Among its most notable changes, the DSO will:
• Present concerts on Friday evenings and Sunday afternoons. There will be no Saturday evening concerts. Subscriptions are available for the series of three Friday evening performances or the series of three Sunday afternoon performances.
• Add the Laird Performing Arts Center to the venues at which it performs. The January concerts will be held at The Grand Opera House in downtown Wilmington. The March and April concerts will be held at the Laird Performing Arts Center at Tatnall School in Greenville.
• Start Friday night concerts earlier, at 7:30 p.m. instead of 8:00 p.m.

“Many of our patrons have said they would prefer to attend concerts during daylight instead of evening hours and, if they do attend an evening concert, they would like it to start and end earlier. In addition, many have asked us to perform in a variety of venues, not just at The Grand,” Milburn said. “Given our abbreviated season this year, the time was right to test the viability of these options.”

The addition of performances at the Laird Performing Arts Center led to perhaps the biggest change of all:  a move from reserved seating to general admission seating. “We are not able to offer reserved seating because we are presenting the series at two different venues that have different seating plans and capacities,” Milburn said. “The Grand can accommodate more than 1,100 people, but there are only 456 seats available at the Laird Performing Arts Center.” Accommodations for people with special needs will be available at both venues.

All of the Classical Series concerts will be led by Maestro Amado. Series details are as follows:

January 2013: New World, featuring Lura Johnson, piano:
Friday, January 25, 2013, at 7:30 p.m. at The Grand Opera House
Sunday, January 27, 2013, at 2:00 p.m. at The Grand Opera House

Humperdinck, Prelude to Hänsel and Gretel
Rachmaninoff, Piano Concerto No. 1 in F-Sharp Minor
Dvořák, Symphony No. 9, Op. 95, E Minor, “From the New World”

March 2013: Beethoven’s World, featuring Kimberly Reighley, flute:
Friday, March 22, 2013, at 7:30 p.m. at the Laird Performing Arts Center at Tatnall School
Sunday, March 24, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. at the Laird Performing Arts Center at Tatnall School

Wagner, Siegfried Idyll
Ibert, Concerto for Flute and Orchestra
Beethoven, Symphony No. 7 in A major, op. 92

April 2013: Tchaikovsky’s World, featuring Sarah Fuller, harp:
Friday, April 12, 2013, at 7:30 p.m. at the Laird Performing Arts Center at Tatnall School
Sunday, April 14, 2013, at 2:00 p.m. at the Laird Performing Arts Center at Tatnall School

Haydn, Symphony No. 93 in D Major
Debussy, Danses sacrée et profane
Tchaikovsky, Symphony No. 5 in E Minor, op. 64

Tickets for all concerts in the series are on sale now. Subscriptions to all three programs are $165.00 each, plus a $5.00 handling fee per order. Single tickets are $60.00 each, plus a $4.00 handling fee per ticket. Subscriptions can be ordered from The Grand Opera House Box Office at (302) 652-5577 or in person at 818 North Market Street in downtown Wilmington. Single tickets may be purchased through The Grand’s Box Office or the DSO’s Website at www.delawaresymphony.org. (Subscriptions are not available for online purchase.)

Previous DSO subscribers were given the opportunity to purchase subscriptions in advance of the public announcement. “We began selling subscriptions on November 5, and we have already sold more than 25% of available subscriptions,” Milburn said. “Because there are fewer seats available for the March and April concerts at the Laird Performing Arts Center, those concerts could sell out. People who want to attend all three concerts in the series should not wait to purchase their tickets.”

In addition to the Classical Series concerts announced today, the DSO will perform chamber concerts in February, March, and April 2013. Tickets for the Chamber Concert Series, which began last month and is sponsored by DuPont, are sold out.

Delaware Symphony Orchestra and Musicians Reach Agreement on Current Season

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DELAWARE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA AND MUSICIANS
REACH AGREEMENT ON CURRENT SEASON
Full orchestra concerts expected to resume in January 2013

Wilmington, Del., October 19, 2012 – The Delaware Symphony Orchestra (DSO) and Local 21 of the American Federation of Musicians Inc. of Delaware have reached an agreement that will enable the DSO to resume full orchestra performances as the musicians and the DSO work together to create a sustainable business model.

“I am extremely pleased that we have reached a resolution for this season that will help move the Delaware Symphony Orchestra to firmer financial ground,” said Tatiana Copeland, who chairs the DSO Board of Directors. “Ultimately, we all want the same thing, and that is to have an artistically excellent and financially stable orchestra that serves the Delaware Valley region for generations to come.”

“The love and support shown to the musicians from the community since the season was suspended in June has kept us all going,” says Cheryl Everill, chair of the DSO Players’ Committee.  “With the signing of this agreement, we are eager and excited to get back on stage and share our passion for live symphonic music with our audience.”

The new agreement allows the DSO to move forward with plans for an abbreviated 2012-2013 season of Classical Series concerts, which tentatively are scheduled to begin in late January 2013. The series likely will feature three concerts, each of which will be performed twice, at venues including the Grand Opera House and the Laird Performing Arts Center at Tatnall School.  The DSO’s four-concert Chamber Series, which began on October 9 and is sold out, is not affected by the agreement.

“As part of our relaunch, we have instituted new fiscal controls, implemented cost-cutting measures, and reduced and realigned staff,” said Diana Milburn, DSO General Manager. “Securing the new agreement was a crucial step in our ongoing efforts to restructure in a way that balances our commitment to world-class music making with the economic realities of operating in a prolonged recessionary environment.”

“The dedicated and talented DSO musicians appreciate the dire financial situation the symphony finds itself in,” says Glenn Finnan, Secretary/Treasurer, American Federation of Musicians, Local 21.  “We know there are resources in the area to support the type of orchestra Delaware deserves: one worthy of attracting and retaining the finest musicians in the region. By accepting a significant reduction in income this season, our musicians hope this one-year agreement gives DSO management the breathing room to reinvigorate that support.”

“Reaching this agreement demonstrates the willingness of our musicians to confront our challenges head on and collaborate on ways to overcome them,” said David Amado, DSO music director and conductor. “Our musicians are enormously talented, and it is an immense privilege to work with them. I am excited that we will be able to make music together soon, and share with audiences the love we have for our art and the passion we have for our work.”

Specific terms of the new agreement, which expires on May 31, 2013, were not disclosed. The DSO and Local 21 will continue to negotiate a longer-term agreement.

Thank you for attending Chamber Strings

Dear Patrons,

Thank you for coming to the first Chamber Series Concert of the 2012-2013 Season at the Hotel du Pont’s Gold Ballroom. How fitting it was for Maestro David Amado to open our season with his reading of Walt Whitman’s “The Music Always Round Me.” A review from Delaware Arts Info blogger Margaret Darby stated “Every phrase and nuance of the Mozart was magically melded with dynamics and articulation falling into place enabling the subtle musical colors to fill the room…The concert was a great taste of what we could have if we continue to support our endangered symphony. ”

You are no doubt aware that like many other orchestras across the country, the DSO is facing substantial challenges to its existence.  To meet these challenges, the board and management are developing a business model firmly rooted in musical excellence and economic realities.  Our progress to date in this and other areas is promising. Like last week’s performance, our second Chamber Series Concert, David Amado and Friends on Feb. 5, is sold out.  Scheduling of full-orchestra performances is pending negotiations with the musicians’ union.
You might be interested to know that DSO’s Maestro David Amado will host “Love & Lyrics,” this year’s Holidazzle event to benefit the DFRC (Delaware Foundation Reaching Citizens with Intellectual DisABILITIES), at the Grand Opera House on Saturday, October 27 at 7:30 p.m. Click here for more information on this event as Maestro Amado continues to be a part of the life of our community.

Your ongoing support is deeply appreciated. Please continue to open our emails for more information about the DSO’s progress. If you enjoyed the first Chamber Concert and would like to do more to help ensure that the DSO continues, here’s how: tell your friends what a great time you had, buy tickets, donate on our website or with a check.

Warm regards,

Diana Milburn, General Manager

A Message from DSO Board Chair, Tatiana Copeland

Dear Symphony Orchestra Musicians, Patrons and Friends,

As promised, I want to keep you updated on progress to re-launch the DSO. The following is a brief summary of activities in no particular priority order.

Board Changes: Several new members have joined the Board of Directors. Laurie Nicoli, Tony Winchester and Dr. Lanny Edelsohn have already been voted onto the Board. Laurie and Tony have extensive Board experience in the arts. Laurie currently serves on the Board of the Grand Opera House and has served in the past on the Board of OperaDelaware.  Tony serves on the Board of OperaDelaware and has provided leadership to their turn-around efforts. Lanny is a long-time supporter and advocate for the arts in a variety of roles including serving on the Board of the Grand Opera House.  Several additional corporation and community leaders are being recruited to join the Board later this fall.

New Treasurer: Frank Carpenter will be officially appointed treasurer at the next DSO Board meeting. Frank works in the Wealth Management Department of PNC Bank and is a CPA. He has served on the Boards of the DSO and the Foundation in the past.

Chamber Series: The Hotel DuPont Chamber Series has been re-launched featuring the DSO musicians.  One-third of the available tickets were sold in the first week.

Classical Series: The proposed Classical Series repertoire, venue, dates, times and budget are currently being reviewed. A plan will be presented to the Board at their next meeting. The goal is to re-launch this series once agreement is reached with the union.

Budget: Every expense item and vendor contract is being reviewed with the goal of cutting operating costs.  Several significant cost savings have already been identified and acted upon.  A revised 2012-2013 budget and details of cost-savings measures will be presented to the Board for discussion and approval at their next meeting.

New Web Site: A cleaner and more easily navigable web site has been launched by our new and less costly web provider.  You can view the site atwww.delawaresymphony.org. (It is still partially under construction.)

Fund-Raising. The DSO Development Committee is very busy planning a number of private fund-raising events spread over the balance of the season. Ellen Roberts has joined the DSO staff part-time as Development Coordinator.  The DSO plans to bring her on full-time as soon as funds become available.  Ellen was Vice President of Investor Relations with Wilmington Trust and has held a number of positions in Corporate Communications in both profit and not-for-profit organizations.

The above activities are only brief summaries of the many changes that are underway to re-launch the DSO.  Under the direction of Rich Fischer and the new DSO team, much has been accomplished in this short time period.  We still have a lot more work to do!  All of us associated with the Delaware Symphony Orchestra appreciate your continued support and ask each of you to keep spreading the word that THE DSO is BACK!

Regards,
Tatiana Copeland

A Message from DSO Board Chair, Tatiana Copeland

Dear Symphony Orchestra Patrons and Friends,

On August 6, the Board of the Delaware Symphony Orchestra held a very important meeting about the future of the DSO.  I want you to be the first to know about the actions we have taken.

First, the wonderful news is that there will be a 2012-13 orchestral season and beyond! We are working on the details now and will keep you informed of the progress, but we intend the DSO re-launch to begin in October with the Chamber Series and continue in January 2013 with the Classical Series.

Second, I have agreed to serve as the new Chair of the DSO Board.  As you know, I have a very long history with the Delaware Symphony Orchestra and have a great passion for it.  I bring this passion and my love of music, along with my business and financial skills, to move the symphony forward and help to save and preserve the wonderful asset we have in the DSO.   My first act as Chair has been to ask David Amado to extend his contract with the DSO until 2014.  He has agreed and generously offered to return a substantial portion of his salary to help improve the financial position of the symphony.

Third, we have hired Diana Milburn to lead the day-to-day operations of the DSO as General Manager – a new position which the Board agreed to fill rather than the previous Executive Director role.  This newly defined position has a salary that is more appropriate to the economic reality of the organization.   Many of you may know Diana from her work with the DuPont Theatre.  She has an excellent background in the performing arts and brings experience, energy and passion to her new role.

Fourth, in order to concentrate our efforts on the re-launch of the orchestral season, I have asked Richard Fischer to rejoin the Board as Vice Chair and to be the Director of the DSO Re-Launch Initiative.   Rich served as chair of the Board from 2005 to 2010 and successfully led the organization through many major changes and achievements.  His experience and detailed knowledge of Symphony operations will be invaluable in the re-launch effort.  Betty Duncan will remain on the Board as a second Vice Chair.  Both Betty and Rich will be supported by a core team of knowledgeable and highly capable individuals who will bring energy and business experience to the DSO.

A number of other office staffing and internal operating changes will be made. Combined with the actions noted above, these will result in significantly reduced operating costs.

I realize that there has been a significant void in communication with you over the past two months.  This is unacceptable. Without your commitment, the DSO would not have been able to achieve the high levels of artistic excellence so evident on the stage.  Many of you have a long history with the DSO and share in the desire to keep this wonderful and historic orchestra alive and growing.  I share this same goal and will make it my priority to ensure open and frequent communications to you and all our key stakeholders.

The primary goal is to re-launch the DSO’s orchestral Chamber Series in October and Classical Series in January, while building a sustainable business model for the Delaware Symphony Orchestra, firmly rooted in musical excellence and economic realities.   This will require some heavy lifting by everyone, and I will be asking for your support.  I believe that working together with the musicians, Board, major donors and subscribers, we can build a bright and lasting future for the DSO.

Today there is a major article in the Wilmington News Journal about the re-launch and I ask each of you to spread the word that THE DSO is BACK!
