Small English ensembles receive Culture Recovery grantsmain
A new raft of grants is being unfurled at midnight.
The period-instrument Hanover Band will receive £75,000 and the Oxford Philharmonia £102,958.
The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment has been granted £37,500. Not much light there.
English Symphony Orchestra got £98,151, English Touring Opera £250,000.
We understand the Hanovers have committed to play this summer in park bandstands around Sussex.
