The D.C. Philharmonic Postpones Tonight's Inaugural Concert, by Anne Midgette
Some 36 hours before they were supposed to open at Strathmore,the fledgling D.C. Philharmonic pulls the plug.

Edited to add:
More on the DC Philharmonic: One musician who was contracted to play with the orchestra has posted a long statement about his experience in the comments section of the original article that is well worth reading for anyone interested in this situation.

The D.C. Philharmonic seemed an audacious endeavor in the present economic climate, to say the least. I hope they manage to get it going. I will attend the first concert they give that does not feature the Mahler Second, which bores me to tears.

Um, now that I read that comment, I'm somewhat less interested in attending any future D.C. Philharmonic concerts.
