Rikskonserter/Concerts Sweden – a national platform for music
The Committee of Inquiry on Cultural Policy´s report suggests that Rikskonserter/Concerts Sweden and Caprice Records should cease to exist. If this suggestion should be executed the consequences would be very bad for Swedish musical life - as well as for its international partners.
The composers and musicians would have to pay for the changes with means that now belong to the music scene. It would also entail breaking down existing structures, including musical exchange with artists, organizations and festivals abroad. With YOUR support, an unnecessary and costly reorganization of the national music scene could be stopped.
Say NO to The Committee of Inquiry on Cultural Policy´s report’s suggestion to end Rikskonserter/Concerts Sweden!
Say YES to a future Concerts Sweden – a national platform for music!
