Breaking news: Menuhin Foundation goes bust

The Yehudi Menuhin Foundation in Germany has filed for insolvency.

A press release from the foundation in Düsseldorf says it has been forced to suspend trading after a government report criticised its annual submission and accounting procedures. The government has also asked for a full breakdown on the spending of a Euro 3 million grant.
The Foundation, set up in 1999, provides music tuition and events for 11,000 school children across north and west Germany.
Yehudi would have been so sad.
Here’s a local report.

  1. Yes, Norman, Yehudi would have been so sad…I know I am at this news. It’s a tough time for funding for music and music education in the USA, and it’s a shame to see such problems elsewhere, too. fecap
