Board members of the Muncie Symphony Orchestra decided to cancel the final performance of the school year because of recent budget issues.
The concert was scheduled for April 30 in John R. Emens Auditorium, which would have cost the orchestra $35,000 to perform.


The not as horrible news is they plan on returning:

“No one wanted to do it. It’s the right decision, as far as financially. We feel horribly that we are in this position,” he said. “On a positive note, we need to let the world know that we will have a season next year.”
Elissa McDonald, executive director of the symphony, said that although the decision was a difficult one, it ensures that the symphony will have more seasons.

These are sure tough times. I hate reading this kind of news.
