A nonprofit organization created to run the San Antonio Symphony announced Wednesday it will no longer take over the troubled orchestra due to a potential multimillion dollar pension obligation.

 


While the San Antonio Symphony continues to delight audiences in South Texas, its decades-long funding difficulties continue. Now, those difficulties face a very tight deadline.

 

The symphony was established in 1939, and it has been a mainstay institution in the San Antonio arts scene. The symphony faced marginal funding throughout much of that time. But now, according to violinist Craig Sorgi, it’s facing a problem it had never faced before.

"A hundred years ago the October Revolution happened in Russia." 

Lang-Lessing's built a program of Russian music to look back at that world-changing event.
