The Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra (JPO) staff and musicians are owed a minimum of R2.2 million in salaries.

This was according to a report by the Star today.

The orchestra held its last performance of the season in Parktown, Johannesburg yesterday evening.

Salaries for September and October were still outstanding, while 75% of the August salaries were paid, fans were told at the concert.

“We depend on one another for survival. We sometimes don’t have petrol to attend practice, but we make a plan,” said one of the musicians, who did not want to be named.

Earlier this year, it was reported that the JPO had started business rescue proceedings with a business rescue practitioner helping the company with a refinancing and restructuring plan.
