Dank voor uw steun. Nu Verder!

The Minister of Education, Culture and Science Marja van Bijsterveldt has announced that the cabinet now intends to maintain the Netherlands Broadcasting Music Centre (NBMC).  Several reasons have been given for this decision: the high quality of the NBMC ensembles, the huge number of (inter)national protests and the permanent demand for live music by the broadcasting organizations.

A this moment the cabinet is planning to make an amount of between 12 and 14 million Euros available from the media budget, this is less than half of the present budget. This amount is therefore insufficient to maintain the NBMC in its entirety. The future of the NBMC will be the subject of talks between the Minister, the broadcasting organizations and the NBMC over the coming months. Thanks to you the cabinet has realized that abolishing the NBMC would have been a bad idea, we are now in discussion with the Minister again about our future.

Once again thank you for your support. We will keep you informed.
