What people don’t realize, though, is how expensive it is to put on a show, Rollins said. The cost for one concert can range anywhere from $15,000 to $22,000.
Each musician is contracted individually. They get paid for each rehearsal and for the show.
Rollins said she hopes people will help keep the orchestra alive by supporting them at the concert.
Weather can affect attendance, but she thinks people might be dug out by Saturday night and ready for a little fun.
“We’re hoping after this crazy weather people will want to come out and enjoy some great music,” she said.
