    Updated:

    PITTSBURGH - The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra’s deficit has nearly tripled in the last year.

    The symphony’s deficit jumped from $1 million to $3 million in 2012.

    Some big money is at stake if the symphony can balance its budget.

    Board Chairman Richard Simmons has pledged $12 million and the Heinz Endowment has promised to donate $5 million.

    The symphony said the budget shortfall is a result of the recession.
