SPCO ends year with $280K surplus

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The St. Paul Chamber Orchestra says it ended the year with a surplus of more than $280,000.

President and managing director Bruce Coppock said during the orchestra's annual meeting Tuesday that the money will be used to partly pay down the orchestra's $800,000 deficit from last year.

After a difficult year that included a seven-month lockout of the orchestra's musicians during a contract dispute, Coppock says he is optimistic about the organization's future.

He tells Minnesota Public Radio News ( ) that the audiences are back, the donations are coming in and the level of interest in the SPCO is at "an all-time high."

Coppock says every one of the orchestra's concerts this year has exceeded goals, with larger attendance and more revenue than anticipated.
