Porsche founds a British orchestra

Porsche founds a British orchestra

The German luxury car-maker has rexcruited 40 local musicians to start an orchestra at its UK base in Preston, Lancashire. The city lost its last orchestra more than half a symphony ago.

A Porsch rep said: ‘When we heard that Preston was the only (large) UK city without an orchestra, we couldn’t believe it. We knew we had to do something to help. Supporting the arts is important to us. The orchestra represents innovation, excellence, and passion – values we share at Porsche. We are proud to participate in this historic new cultural chapter for Preston.’

So this is what things have come to: a high-end German manufacturer providing culture in a town abansoned by Arts Cancel England. Well done, ACE.
