Classic Arts News   Fiscal Problems Caused Eos Orchestra's Demise
New York's Eos Orchestra shut down this month for financial reasons, the New York Times reports.

Founder and artistic director Jonathan Sheffer told the paper that fiscal problems were the primary cause of the demise of the group after ten years. A statement released by Eos last week said only that the ensemble had "successfully conclude[d] its mission."

Sheffer also confirmed that he would continue to perform with the Cleveland group Red {an orchestra}, which he helped to found in 2002..

Eos performed new music, often commissioned by the group, and unusual stagings of canonical works. Recently, the group played a scaled-down version of Wagner's Ring cycle.
