There could be a new symphony orchestra for Honolulu if a local professor has his way.

His new orchestra would be called the Hawaii Philharmonic.

Tim Stanton says having an orchestra is a necessity for the city.

Stanton wants to have non-union musicians, and a small management team, which he contends will increase the chance to make a profit.

He believes the symphony lost support because of bickering between musicians and symphony management, and that there’s fence mending to be done to make a new orchestra successful.

“I think we’ve got to try to re-establish trust, both with the musicians, whether they’re present or new musicians, and with our population. The people who supported us for all these years,” Stanton said.
