Columbus Symphony performs outdoors in better times (Photo: discoverohio.com)In the latest chapter of the ongoing struggles over the Columbus Symphony’s future, the orchestra is attempting to cancel its labor contract with the musicians. Douglas Fisher, the musicians’ union’s president, says the orchestra doesn’t have the authority to do so.

The orchestra says that it will incur a US$1.3 million deficit if it continues to pay the players beyond the end of the orchestra’s regular indoor season (which concluded end May). The orchestra’s outdoor summer concerts have already been given the axe for this year, and next season’s concerts are also endangered.

More from the Columbus Dispatch.

Columbus’s weekly The Other Paper muses on the origins of the problem.
