Exclusive: Europe festivals slam door on UK ensemblesmain
The head of a major European festival has written to British musicians, warning that they are unlikely to be invited again in the future.
The exact words:
A lot of museums in EU will not give any loans [to Britain] at the moment because everything is unclear. And a lot of colleagues stop inviting British orchestras and theatres.
The state of the union, end of 2019.
UPDATE: A leading UK music entrepreneur comments: ‘Unfortunately this corroborates what I’d heard [from promoters] when working abroad’.
