Delaware Symphony Orchestra schedules concerts

    Two months after announcing that it was suspending its 2012-2013 season, the Delaware Symphony Orchestra now plans to keep on playing.

    The News Journal of Wilmington reports that starting in October, the orchestra will perform a four-concert chamber series at the Hotel du Pont. And beginning in January, it will stage at least four additional concerts.

    The scaled-back season is part of a massive restructuring intended to preserve the orchestra’s long-term health. The DSO has a new board chair, a smaller board and a new general manager. Longtime donor Tatiana Copeland was appointed as board chair on Monday, and Diana Milburn will serve as general manager.
