Farewell CBC Radio Orchestra
North America's last radio orchestra is getting the heave-ho.
The CBC Orchestra, based in Vancouver, will play its last sweet sounds sometime in September of this year.
The 35 orchestra members, all freelancers, will be looking for gigs elsewhere.
More details in the Victoria Times-Colonist.
The tour begins at the CPR Steamship Terminal Building, located across the street from the BC Parliament Buildings pictured here. ©SueFrause...
