The future of the San Antonio Symphony looks dark at the end of the year 2017. The musicians’ contract will expire next Sunday, December 31, and a new one is far from being agreed upon. Moreover, there is trouble in the new organization which was set to take over he governance of the orchestra.

San Antonio supermarket chain H-E-B, the Tobin Endowment and the Kronkosky Charitable Foundation set up the nonprofit Symphonic Music for San Antonio and planned to take over the symphony’s assets and operations from the 78-year-old symphony society by Sept. 1.

This group has now announced that it had pulled out of the deal about unclear figures of the musicians’ pension fund.
