The nine-week Atlanta Symphony Orchestra lockout spawned its fair share of conspiracy theories about orchestra and Woodruff Arts Center management among supporters of the musicians, often spurred by frequent accusation-filled statements released by the ASO Players’ Association.
So it wasn’t surprising that there was speculation on arts blogs about the timing of the Dec. 5 announcement that the arts center was receiving a $38 million gift from the Robert W. Woodruff Foundation.
