The CBC has announced that it will disband the CBC RADIO ORCHESTRA in NOVEMBER, after the conclusion of this FALL's concert season. Financial reasons were cited for the move, which brings to an end what is believed to be the last radio-sponsored orchestra of its kind in NORTH AMERICA.
The VANCOUVER-based orchestra was formed in 1938 and has about 45 members.
