The oldest symphony orchestra in Switzerland, the Lucerne Symphony, has played a spontaneous concert in front of the city hall in Lucerne. It was the musicians’ very musical way to protest against the proposed cuts in the orchestra’s funding. From 2018 on, the Lucerne Region wants to reduce the funding by half a million Swiss Francs. The orchestra’s General Manager, Numa Bischof Ullmann, said, the reduction of such an amount is not imaginable and would mean the end of the orchestra.
