The Philadelphia Orchestra has just declared bankruptcy. The Detroit Symphony Orchestra is emerging from a bruising, six-month strike. The orchestras of Honolulu and Syracuse have folded in recent months. Many communities are left wondering: what's the prognosis for my local symphony? But while many American orchestras face great challenges, a hopeful note can be found in the groups that are exploring new models of presentation, recording and community engagement. In an effort to better understand the state of the American orchestra and where it's headed, WQXR welcomes four people working deep in the trenches.
