Abu Dhabi shuts down its orchestramain
Apparently, there’s too much competition from visiting orchestras.
Statement by Janet Hassouneh, the orchestra’s founder and executive director:
‘NSO Symphony Orchestra has delighted discerning music lovers for the past seven years, both at the Emirates Palace and in venues across the emirates. With a growing number of world-class facilities opening in the UAE, attracting international soloists and orchestras, I feel it’s the right time to pass on the baton to these new purveyors, so that audiences can enjoy ever-more outstanding musical experiences.’
The last concert will take place in April.
