The ‘Orchestre National of Pays de la Loire’ (ONPL) is in danger. The orchestra, which is currently financed by several local regional and national partners, risks to lose the support of the Département Maine et Loire. These would diminish the budget by 7.22% (464.373 €). Such a loss would no longer allow the orchestra to fully run its program, and a complete new definition of its activities would be necessary, calling into question the whole artistic project of principal conductor Pascal Rophé. The Orchestra is asking the politicians to think over their intention and launched a petition. You may sign here.
