Save the Ulster Orchestra – sign the petition

Please sign the petition to save the Ulster Orchestra. We encourage all who value the arts and musical culture to support it.

The Musicians’ Union has been aware of the financial picture there since it first became an issue. MU Officials have been in regular contact with the management and orchestra representatives, and is supporting initiatives by the Ulster Orchestra Society to improve its short term financial situation. At the same time Union Officials have been in talks with management regarding the medium and long term financial position of the orchestra.

As things stand, the issue is a political one which requires a political intervention.

Please sign the petition to make this happen.

You can also join the Facebook group to show your support.

If or when the MU is called upon to assist in any other specific practical way it is ready and prepared for the task. At the moment the Ulster Orchestra Society has not requested any specific public assistance from the MU but talks behind the scenes continue on a regular basis.
