In the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, R. M.

Seattle's Northwest Chamber Orchestra earned front page status in the St. Patrick's Day edition of the Seattle Times by voting to file for bankruptcy protection and cancelling the remaining two subsciption concerts of the 2005-06 season.

The Northwest Chamber Orchestra players form the nucleus of two other orchestras, the Pacific Northwest Ballet Orchestra and the Auburn Symphony (both orchestras directed by PNB Music Director Stewart Kershaw).
