The Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra reported in its 2015-2016 Annual Report an accumulated surplus of more than half a million dollars. Financially, things were not always so rosy. At some point in its now almost seventy-year-old existence, the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra had a staggering deficit of three million dollars. Along the way, there had been accomplishments, but also labour issues, poor concert attendance, and instead of getting a raise, musicians in this professional large-market Prairie orchestra took a fifteen per cent hit in their salaries.
