The new Dutch government is proposing to scrap the Netherlands
Broadcasting Music Centre. If the plans are passed by the Dutch
parliament, the decision could bring the closure of three radio
orchestras – the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic, the Netherlands
Radio Chamber Philharmonic and the Metropole Orchestra. The
Netherlands Radio Choir would also be hit, as well as the music
centre's library and education projects.
A petition against the closure has been set up at http://en.mco.nl/mco_page/detail/21053
