After living week by week with its finances, ending its season early and sending people home with worthless tickets, the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra had to declare bankruptcy last year. Yet, it’s 50 year run is not over yet. When Chancy Nancy heard about the tragedy, she committed her staff and the university’s resources to this catastrophe.

Headed by Ann Clarke, the VPA dean, and Jeffry Comanici, the VPA assistant dean for placement, SU has, very quietly, been working on finding a way to make the orchestra a success again. Looking into their finances and examining the last time the orchestra made a profit are two ways officials have started surveying the issue. University officials have yet to really talk about the program, so many details are left unknown. Who knows, SU musicians, you might have a job offering right around the corner.
