A message from Maestro William-Michael Costello (source LinkedIn):
I sincerly hope those responsible will do all they can to save the orchestra.I know this ensemble very well, since 2001 and have conducted it several times. It is a very, very important cultural institution for all of Extremadura, for education and for the greater Lisboa area also.
If the existance of the orchestra can not be secured, this will mean an irreapable loss for all. Please consider.
