Soulful Symphony latest to be hit by recession
The Soulful Symphony has canceled its next program, scheduled for April 3 at Strathmore and April 4 at the Meyerhoff, due to the economic slump. The season finale in May, a tribute to Motown, will proceed as scheduled.
In a statement just released, Soulful Symphony founder and artistic director said: "It's unfortunate that the current economic downturn has affected us in this way. We are anticipating an exciting evening as we close the season with The Sounds of Motown. Our patrons are resilient and we will do everything possible to keep alive the wonderful performances they have come to love."
Adds Baltimore Symphony Orchestra vice president and general manager, Kendra Whitlock Ingram: “We felt it best to focus all of our efforts on The Sounds of Motown, which, given current sales, is projected to sell out.” (Soulful Symphony is affiliated with the BSO.)
