The Philadelphia Business Journal reports the Kimmel Center is cutting jobs and programming. “The performing arts marketplace continues to undergo major change and the pace of change is increasing,” said Kimmel Center President and CEO Anne Ewers. “The Kimmel Center must aggressively respond by becoming more efficient, addressing our communities’ diverse artistic interests and working even more closely with our resident companies.” David Devan, executive director of one of the resident groups, the Opera Company of Philadelphia, called the moves “important and necessary. “Collectively, these steps reflect the leadership and vision of KCI’s management team and their concern for the resident companies and the audiences who are so enriched by our programming.” The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts and Academy of Music are home to eight resident companies: the Philadelphia Orchestra, Opera Company, Pennsylvania Ballet, Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, American Theater Arts for Youth, Philadanco, Philadelphia Chamber Music Society and Peter Nero and the Philly Pops."
