As some of you may already know, it was announced last week that the CBC radio orchestra, about to embark on it's 70th concert season is being dismantled due to the funding cuts from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. It has prompted a huge amount of outcry here in Canada as it is considered somewhat of a national icon. Today, UBC school of music cancelled classes so that the students could attend a protest that took place at the CBC station in downtown Vancouver.
We got a fair bit of media attention but we need more help!!
If you all would take the time to sign the petition to save the CBC radio orchestra that would be fantastic!
you can read more about the protest (along with images and videos) and the orchestra and it's current situation on facebook at the following address: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=10103441879
