MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Barring a massive funding infusion, Memphis Symphony Orchestra board members have approved a resolution to "wind-down" the organization's operations at the end of the season.

The organization would need $20-$25 million to carry on without major changes.

Without the money, a best case scenario would include fewer performances and less community outreach.
