Disaster: Orchestra loses all instruments in false-alarm floodmain
The Orquesta de Extremadura, which has been fighting a tooth-and-nail struggle for survival, has lost all of its instruments when a false fire alarm triggered an hour’s blast of water jets at the Palacio de Congresos de Badajoz.
The orchestra, which serves the impoverished border region between Spain and Portugal, has cancelled this week’s concerts and does not know where to turn.
There is a contact address on its website. Please get in touch if you can help. This is a genuine human and musical emergency.
