The premier music director of TFO was Irwin Hoffman who served for 19 years from 1968 till 1987. From 2003 to 2012, the post of the music director was filled in by Stefan Sanderling. The contract that he had signed with the orchestra was supposed to end in the season of 2013-2014. However, reports of conflict between him and the organizers of the orchestra sprung up which ultimately led to his departure from the company.
In 2003, the musicians working in The Florida Orchestra consented to a legal contract whereby their salaries were cut by 16%. This happened due to the fiscal deficit that had taken place in a season prior to 2003. A strategy to raise the endowment of the company from $8 million to $25 million was planned. Yet, this strategy did not work in favor of the orchestra and it was not executed by the start of 2004. This resulted in seven musicians of the ensemble leaving the orchestra. In November 2006 another deficit which amounted to $676,615 for that year was reported. In 2012, the financial state of the orchestra looked much better than before. After successfully performing to dozens of live shows and gaining a great fan following, the orchestra was seen rising back up to its former glory.
