Johannesburg - The Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra (JPO) staff and musicians are owed a minimum of R2.2m in salaries, The Star reported on Friday.

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

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

"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.
