If you’ve had a contract in the post to play with the Lucerne Festival Strings, be careful: it may be fake.
Here’s the Festival’s statement:

Please be careful when you received an invitation to perform as musician in a non-existing Lucerne Festival Strings tour by the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. The contract looks deceptively real, even though the correspondence is with mistakes in writing! Please share.
