Show support for New Philharmonic

Thank you for running your informative article Jan. 26 concerning the pending decision on the fate of the New Philharmonic Orchestra. I had been unaware that their future was in jeopardy because the College of DuPage was losing money on their performances, especially during the current period while the MAC Performing Arts Center is being renovated.

After reading your article, my wife and I altered our plans for that evening so that we were able to attend what could be the last performance of the New Philharmonic. We enjoyed a wonderful performance of Mahler's First Symphony at Edman Chapel on the campus of Wheaton College. The orchestra played beautifully, but the evening was even more special because of Maestro Muspratt's "Boot Camp," where he explained the background of the music and what to listen for during the performance.

This orchestra and its conductor are one of the great artistic and entertainment treasures of DuPage County. My wife and I have written the board of trustees of COD to express our desire that they find a way to keep this ensemble performing. We are hopeful that their performances can be self-sustaining once the renovated MAC is open again. We encourage others who share our feelings to also express their support for the New Philharmonic and to attend what we hope will be additional performances yet to come.
