Orchestra Digest: Feb. 17th

This week: A new deal in Halifax, new seasons at Orchestra London and the National Ballet, updates on the Minnesota lockouts, and learning to love unfamiliar music. Here are stories we're following, in the news and on the web....
Last week our poll asked, "Should Canadian orchestras play more new music?" A small majority responded affirmatively -- 66% said we should play more new music, while 33% thought that we play about the right amount. (Only 6 people responded though!) We'll return with a new poll next week!
