Musical instruments have yet again stood in for the human form in pursuit of art (Diary, DW 20 December 2001).

The consultancy also generated the name and identity for the orchestra, which will provide bursaries for young professionals just starting out on the road to hard slog, late nights and small pay packets. Midriffs, body hair, topless boys and Calvin Kleins aside, at least this time the models have kept their clothes on, unlike the Lambeth Orchestra, which was so strapped for cash it stripped for cash.
