SUN CITY-- The West Valley Symphony - $90,000 in debt and floundering without a permanent home - closed its doors Monday after 38 years.
'It's really a very sad thing for the West Valley,' said Julie Richard, executive director of the West Valley Arts Council.
Like many other arts operations, the symphony was simply underfunded, she said.
