The cash-strapped Virginia Symphony Orchestra is breathing a sigh of relief today, after Norfolk officials agreed to provide the ensemble with a $500,000 lifeline. “The terms include repayment with 6 percent interest over five years,” and the VSO says the loan will enable it to make it to the end of the fiscal year without declaring bankruptcy.
