Orchestra lays off catering, dining staff

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The financially strapped Nashville Symphony has laid off its catering and dining staff.

The Tennessean reported symphony CEO Alan Valentine and Board Chairman Ed Goodrich announced late Monday what they called a "difficult decision." They said affected workers were told Monday that their jobs would end Aug. 4. The number of people being laid off wasn't disclosed.

A June 28 deadline is approaching that could result in foreclosure on the orchestra's Schermerhorn Symphony Center.

A group of lenders is owed $82.3 million from a 2004 bond issue used to construct the concert hall.
