Talk:City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra

Inappropriate infobox[edit]

The Template:Infobox musical artist isn't quite appropriate for this page:

  • Calling affiliated choirs "Associated acts"
  • The conductors listed under "Members" as if they are a band
  • Listing Neville Chamberlain as a "Former member" (not sure he even founded it as such, although it might have been his idea [1]
  • "Notable instruments" doesn't really make sense. The organ doesn't belong to the orchestra
  • Nowhere to list their home venue, Symphony Hall (yet, as pointed out above, it does list the organ from the hall)

I can't find an infobox for orchestras. Does anyone else agree that there should be one? JRawle (Talk) 10:36, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

I have removed the reference to the Symphony Organ from the infobox - as mentioned above, the instrument does not belong to the CBSO, it's simply part of the equipment of one of the various venues in which the CBSO plays.--MV Overchurch (talk) 13:27, 15 March 2008 (UTC)
