Yet Another Symphony (Green Bay) Declares Intent to Close - NPQ - Nonprofit Quarterly
Yet Another Symphony (Green Bay) Declares Intent to Close - NPQ - Nonprofit Quarterly: NPQ has become accustomed to waiting for another shoe to drop whenever a classical music group declares it is going out of business. In this case, the Green Bay Symphony in Wisconsin has declared it will close at the conclusion of the 2014–2015 season. The apparent culprits are the oft-cited evil twins of declining attendance and eroding donations. But the San Diego Opera claimed the same, declaring its impending closure only to find that it would not be allowed to go so gently into a good night.
