Toronto Symphony Orchestra Annual General Meeting

2012/2013 Season

For Immediate Release: December 3, 2013 – Today, at the Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO) Annual General Meeting, TSO Board Chair M. George Lewis reported that the 2012/2013 season began a multi-year transition to ensure continued outstanding service to the community while implementing a rebalancing of costs and revenue to ensure long-term fiscal sustainability. Efforts began mid-year with cost reductions through restructuring and the addition of redesigned revenue initiatives in philanthropy.
