Julian Lloyd Webber speaks out (in the Radio Times) about the BBC Singers (or as much of it that fits!).

New Strategy for Classical Music Prioritises Quality, Agility and Impact. From which the following: “… therefore the BBC has made the difficult decision to close the BBC Singers (20 posts) and invest resources in a wider pool of choral groups from across the UK.”

Feedback (Radio 4; March 31) – Paul Hughes (formerly Director of the BBC Singers & Symphony Orchestra) speaks out.
