Philly Pops Presenter Encore Series Inc. Set to Exit Bankruptcy

Pete Nero is still stepping down next year after 30-some years of service, but at least Encore Series Inc., the Philly Pops presenter, has been cleared to exit bankruptcy after the next two weeks. The decision from bankruptcy Court Judge Eric Frank will bring the Pops out of their Chapter 11 status that resulted from last year’s bankruptcy filing by the Philadelphia Orchestra Association. Great news, but perhaps president and CEO of ESI Frank Giordano put it best in saying “now we have to sell some tickets.” [Newsworks]
