Banner season for once struggling orchestra

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) - It's been a banner season so far for the Charleston Symphony Orchestra.

Officials with the CSO are reporting record revenue for their season opening concerts.

The first concert held at Gaillard Municipal Auditorium on November 12th brought in more ticket revenue than any other concert in the organization's history as 2,300 people enjoyed internationally renowned pianist Emanuel Ax perform.

Two other opening concerts also broke ticket revenue and attendance goals.

"This time last year we were still suspended. Things were still quiet. Since then we have completely redesigned our operating model. We have a new forward direction for the symphony. Right now we have a new professional staff, we have musicians that are on board working on the staff with us so it's a very positive direction," said Daniel Beckley with the Charleston Symphony Orchestra.

The orchestra is hosting a several chamber music concerts this holiday season.
