Brazil has abolished another orchestra, this time by social media.
The new Mayor of Sao José, Felicio Ramuth announced on Facebook that the sao josé dos campos symphony orchestra has been permanently closed. He said in a Fb video message that the city cannot pay its water bills, let alone its health care.
The rest of his page is full of pictures of Ramuth visiting a hospital.
