Hail DR Underholdnings Orkestret – Thank you and Goodbye

September 8, 2014 by Rasmus

In 2008 we were invited by The Danish National Chamber Orchestra (DR UnderholdningsOrkestret) to perform our newly released album Parades in its entirety.

DR Underholdnings Orkestret took a big chance inviting us back then and we are forever grateful. Their trust have since led to a total of 30 collaborative concerts with 14 different orchestras around the world.

Today DR (Danish Radio) announced that the orchestra will be shut down by the end of the year.

This makes us very sad and disillusioned as well. In Denmark DR Underholdnings Orkestret has been going forward in trying to rethink and change the idea of what an orchestra is and what role it can play in our time.

Budget cuts are never easy and sacrifices have to be made. In a year where DR has burned millions and millions on a Eurovision TV show and for the 8th year in a row spends millions on producing the X-Factor TV show it is however hard to not get pissed off.

HAIL to the beautiful people in DR Underholdnings Orkestret. 
THANK you all!

Here is a document from that concert back in 2008. It holds a special place in our hearts.
