Fischer Announces Anonymous Donation to Aid Orchestra Talks

Mayor Greg Fischer just released the following statement regarding the ongoing dispute between the Louisville Orchestra and its musicians:“An anonymous donor has stepped forward with an offer to provide some funding to bring a nationally recognized consultant to our city to work with the mediator, Henri Mangeot, as an additional resource for both management and the musicians. I strongly encourage both sides to take advantage of this opportunity. I urge the parties to continue talking and be creative as the orchestra is an important part of Louisville’s cultural footprint and all options for preserving it should be pursued. My hope is that a sustainable financial artistic solution can be achieved.”We're pursuing reactions to this news from both Orchestra management and the musicians.
