Successful funding drive averts threat of orchestras closure. The London Mozart Players, one of the UKs oldest chamber orchestras, has staved off the possibility of closure after a drive to raise urgent funds was a success. Two months after news emerged that the chamber orchestra was on the brink, its funding appeal is on track to reach its target of £50,000 by the end of July. The orchestras managing director Simon Funnell said that individual donations to the appeal had ranged from a few pounds to more than £5,000. The London borough of Croydon, where the ensemble has been based for over 20 years, has agreed to continue its support until March 2013, committing £180,000 over two years from April 2011.
