Toronto orchestra closed after fat-shaming singers

"Although almost all of our vocalists are fit and slim - the way our boutique orchestra would like our front line performing artists to be two of our featured singers were not," the email read. "We hope that they would, as such, refrain from using tight-fitting dresses and use loose dresses instead.". Ms Leone says she sent an email back to the orchestra, expressing her frustration and quitting the organisation. After news of this message went public, and many other singers complained, the management sent her a follow-up email notifying her that the orchestra would be shutting down.
