Can Kickstarter save the Montreal Chamber Orchestra?

The Montreal Chamber Orchestra is seeking $40,000, money they need if they're to stage the first concert of their 42nd season. As of writing, roughly $4,000 has been contributed. The deadline for pledges is September 19, just 10 days before the show.

Left with a major shortfall for their 42nd season, an orchestra of 'discovery' turns to crowdfunding
