Brian Rudman writes about funding for the Auckland Philharmonic Orchestra and raises the usual Auckland whine about the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra.
Referring to the NZSO as “the Wellington band” is pitiful stuff. The NZSO plays all over New Zealand. The location of their home base is pretty insignificant. I wouldn’t think different of them if their base was in Christchurch, as long as they still played in Wellington.
Incidentially the NZSO will play in Auckland 13 times this year.No tag for this post.
