The Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, in Winnipeg, Canada, has this week announced that it will be forced to lay off all 111 employees due to growing concerns surrounding the Coronavirus.

The layoff consists of 67 orchestra members, 30 administration staff and 14 Sistema teachers.

All concerts and fundraisers in the foreseeable future have been canceled.

"It could not have happened at a worse time for us ... I've been in arts management since 1987 ... I've never, never seen anything like this, completely unprecedented..." Winnipeg Symphony Executive Director Trudy Schroeder has this week said.

"When it comes to all these these big packages for corporate relief and that sort of thing, I mean at this point the cultural sector has not been included," she has said.
