Riccardo Muti

The Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association announced an operating deficit of $1.4 million for fiscal 2017, ending June 30, 2017. In 2016 Riccardo Muti’s orchestra had a surplus of $400,000. According to the press release, the negative result comes from the decline in ticket sales and of other operating revenues, as well as  from a substantial $700,000 rise in expenses.

During the 2016/17 season, the CSOA presented more than 420 programs including concerts, community events and educational activities. Approximately 426,000 people attended CSOA performances and presentations at Symphony Center and in other venues in the greater Chicago area last season.
