The Chicago Symphony Orchestra published generally positive results for fiscal 2018, which ended June 30, despite an operating deficit of $900,000, down from the previous year’s $1.4 million. Presenting a total of 443 concerts, community events and educational programs, including 224 free programs, the orchestra sold out 63 concerts and boosted ticket revenue to $23.3 million (a $1.1 million increase over the year prior). Muti’s CSO has an 86 percent renewal rate for the main series subscriptions, which the orchestra says is one of the highest for a major U.S. orchestra.
