Peria resigns as Foss superintendent, chooses to stay at Corecom

At the conclusion of the 2023-2024 concert season, which saw a 40% increase in attendance and box office receipts, Andrea Peria Giaconia has resigned from his position as superintendent of the Sicilian Symphony Orchestra Foundation. After just 9 months, Peria was forced to resign, opting for a position at the Corecom. “The results achieved after a year of managing the Foundation appear clearly positive both for the re-launch of the orchestra’s image and for the economic results obtained,” a note from Foss states. In particular, with a total budget of 11 million euros, the value of production has doubled from 569 thousand euros in 2022 to 1.2 million euros in 2023. This increase, combined with careful management savings, has allowed to offset the reduction in public funding, resulting in a profit of 500 thousand euros, of which 400 thousand euros have been set aside for the Foss employees in accordance with the framework agreement signed in Rome with the union representatives. “I would like to thank all those who supported me during these months of intense activity, the subscribing public, the board of directors, the professors of the Sicilian Symphony Orchestra, the administrative staff, and my musical consultant Dario Oliveri,” says Peria Giaconia. “I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to the President of the Sicilian Region, Renato Schifani, for the attention and sensitivity shown to Foss and specifically for the increase in the annual contribution to the activities of the Sicilian Symphony Orchestra Foundation.”
