Biographical / Historical
The WCO was managed by an all-volunteer board of directors with a variety of professional and managerial backgrounds. Financial support came from admissions, memberships, grants, and fundraising events. To operate within its financial resources, the board kept a high quality of performances by reducing the number of musicians but paying them union wages. However, this was not enough to keep the orchestra afloat, and the last concert of the Women Composers Orchestra was held on May 20, 1995.
