Australian Pops Orchestra To Close?

The Australian Pops Orchestra is going out of business after failing to find a sponsor. “The orchestra, which also performs as the Australian Philharmonic Orchestra, will play its final concert on New Year’s Eve. It has a long line of credits, having played behind Jose Carreras, Luciano Pavarotti and Dame Kiri Te Kanawa. Managing director Kel McMillan says it is a big disappointment ahead of the orchestra’s 25th anniversary year.”
