It’s been a year since the San Antonio Symphony took some dramatic steps to make the organization financially stable. So how is the symphony doing now?
In March 2016, the symphony announced it would balance its budget by reducing the number of performances. Musicians agreed to a three week furlough -- time off without pay. San Antonio Symphony CEO David Gross didn't like having to make that move.
"Having been a musician I understand the sacrifice. Sebastian and myself took similar reductions in our pay," Gross says.
