It is likely that we will not get all the way to our end of the season.

In essence we are insolvent now.

A smaller core orchestra must be part of any mediated solution.

We have communicated to the music-director candidates the current situation. It's our intention, as long as we are able to operate the season, to have those candidates come in.

As long as we are producing concerts, we saw no reason not to have discussions with the conductors coming in. They all know where we are.

We don't want to handicap ourselves if a solution is reached.
