June 03, 2014 is appealing for information.

Inspired by it hopes to lay bare the economic facts in music and other arts.

    A cursory look at the list of submissions, there are mentions of a commission by a Youth Orchestra. And a conductor working on 6 rehearsals, 1 performance for 48 Euros. Your conclusion not quite justified.

  • a fan says:

    Well here’s one for a start….Birmingham Royal Ballet and Rombert Dance company will pay thery new conducting fellow (read assistant/cover conductor) ……nothing…..

  • Zenaida says:

    Found this on the website about a composer being paid €250.000 for the commission of a classical music piece in Russia

  • Bob M says:

    And how is the information going to be validated? This site sounds like just another silly gossip site.
