Toronto orchestra seeks ‘only fit and slim’ performersmain
Global News has obtained an internal email from Sheraton Cadwell Orchestras, a company ‘specialising in providing professional musicians for the upscale market in and around the Greater Toronto Area.’
Its specifications are anything but upscale.
After noting that ‘although almost all of our vocalists are fit and slim – the way our boutique orchestra would like our front line performing artists to be … two of our featured singers were not’, the email lays down the law:
‘As per our highly selective casting requirements for vocal artists taking on a prominent leading role on stage, only singers who are physically fit and slim (or at the very least, those who know how to dress strategically/suitably in order to not bring attention to their temporary physical/dietary indulgences) would be showcased with our boutique orchestras.’
This is clearly not a company that puts music or ethics anywhere near the top of its priorities.
