It’s not so old, but already the Metropolitan Chamber Orchestra has re-invented itself and will, in future be known as The Metropolitan Orchestra (TMO).
Here’s the announcement from the orchestra:
“It is with great pleasure and excitement that we announce that the Metropolitan Chamber Orchestra will officially be rebranded as
THE METROPOLITAN ORCHESTRA (TMO) at our next Met series, May 26th and 27th 2012.
With our annual concert season building and diversifying over the past 4 years to now include twelve full orchestral concerts, smaller chamber concerts, large gala events, outdoor events, cross-over concerts, commercial engagements and more, the orchestra is clearly more than a ‘chamber ensemble’. As such, it was decided in early 2012 that it was time to re-brand with a name that better reflected the orchestra and its true versatility.
In choosing the new name, it was important that it would be easily identified with our current name, as well as our mission of presenting premium concerts across the greater Sydney Metropolitan Area”.
