“Enjoying music thanks to Solid Energy’s coal operations is perverse.”

17 Nov

“The NZSO is vital for our musical culture and places NZ next to other cultural nations who all fund their national orchestras. And while private sponsorship is now common around the world, I don’t know of any government bringing “their” orchestra into a position where it may have to accept a coal-mining company as their major sponsor. Enjoying music thanks to Solid Energy’s coal operations is perverse and embarrassing and today unworthy of a cultural nation.”

Prof Klaus Bosselmann, University of Auckland
