Grim news from the Montreal Chamber Orchestra. After 41 years of concert-giving, they need $40,000 to start the next season.

Founder Wanda Kaluzny has turned to Kickstarter to raise the cash. That’s desperate. When NY City Opera did the same, it went down in debt and derision.

    I lived in Montreal 2001-3 and went to all sorts of concerts by all sorts of groups – it’s an incredible city for music – but I never heard of the Montreal Chamber Orchestra.

  • Emil Archambault says:

    Indeed, the Montreal Chamber Orchestra is not exactly known for its quality standards, and definitely not an essential part of the Montreal music scene.
