Delaware Symphony resurrects 2012-2013 season

The Delaware Symphony Orchestra has announced the show will go on.

In June, the troubled Delaware Symphony canceled its entire 2012-2013 season in order to re-structure its finances and figure out how to stay afloat in the long term.

But the new chair of the symphony’s board, Tatiana Copeland, is reinstating it, in part.

There will be a chamber orchestra series in October, a New Year’s Eve concert, and an undetermined number of spring concerts. The programs and spring dates are still to be figured out.

“There’s a scramble because there’s a lot of work to do,” said Diana Milburn, the orchestra new general manager. “But it’s such a positive feeling. It’s a very positive going forward.”

Milburn says public outcry against canceling the season lead the new leadership to hastily schedule the shortened series of concerts.
