The new Dutch cabinet wants to silence the Netherlands Broadcasting Music Center
LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!
Visit the special campaign site at www.mco.nl and express your opinion.
The coalition agreement of the new Dutch cabinet includes the statement that the NBMC is to be scrapped. Without any further explanation or justification the future of four highly renowned broadcasting ensembles has become uncertain. The rug is being pulled out from under a distinctively Dutch music culture that can be heard in abundance via radio, television, online, and live in well-filled concert halls such as the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Vredenburg Leidsche Rijn in Utrecht, at the Holland Festival, Pinkpop and the North Sea Jazz Festival.
The three radio orchestras and the Netherlands Radio Choir will have to disappear from the scene after 65 years of distinctive artistic work. The music library will be closed and MCO Education will have to disappoint hundreds of pupils in the region.
Never before has there been a threat of such major cultural devastation in The Netherlands. Please prevent the Music Center from closing down, and support our musicians.
