Or­ches­tral mu­si­cians cham­pion a lost cause

BBC Music Magazine - - The Full Score -

To high­light the on­go­ing is­sue of pas­sen­gers be­ing care­less with their pos­ses­sions, East Mid­lands Trains has launched a cam­paign called ‘Cello, is it me you’re look­ing for?’, fronted by the Royal Phil­har­monic Orches­tra. Items to have made their way into the com­pany’s lost prop­erty o ce over the last year in­clude a ver­i­ta­ble ar­ray of mo­bile phones, wal­lets and um­brel­las, plus a life­size cut-out of Don­ald Trump, a six-foot in­flat­able cac­tus, Star Trek out­fits and – hence the RPO’S in­volve­ment – enough in­stru­ments to equip half a sym­phony orches­tra. We un­der­stand that the ma­jor­ity of aban­doned vi­o­las go un­claimed.
