Trumpery in action: Florida governor vetoes orchestra’s work in schoolsmain
The Republican Governor of Florida, Rick Scott, has blocked a $500,000 grant that would have allowed the Florida Orchestra to work with schools and community orchestras.
The veto was part of $34 million that Governor Scott cut on Friday from the state’s budget.
The orchestra is dismayed. Its music director, Michael Francis, is a former LSO player, highly experienced in London outreach initiatives.
