Merge and copyright violationEdit

I have merged the article Opera Carolina Chorus to this one. The subject matter and notability was not sufficient for an independent article. Note also that the Opera Carolina Chorus article was a verbatim paste from in violation of copyright. I have thus heavily edited the merged material to remove the copyright violation and the promotional, unencylopedic tone of the original. Voceditenore (talk) 08:08, 4 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Merge DeletedEdit

It was not appropriate for the Opera Carolina Chorus article to be merged into this one without proper research. The Opera Carolina Chorus is NOT, contrary to what Voceditenore might think, a subdivision or department of Opera Carolina. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 03:08, 25 July 2008.

That's fine by me, although there is no reason why information about OCC cannot be placed in this article since the two organizations obviously have a close connection even if they have separate governance, e.g. as stated in this article: "Opera Carolina presents four main stage productions, along with the Opera Carolina Chorus and the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra" and this from the original OCC page "The Opera Carolina Chorus is the locally-based performing ensemble of Opera Carolina." (a verbatim copy from their website [1], as it turns out) Voceditenore (talk) 07:00, 25 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Note to From your edit histories, I assume that you and WaxonWaxov are the same person. If you are not then you should not have removed WaxonWaxov's comment from this talk page as you did here:[2]. Also please remember to sign you comments, even if you are editing anonymously, and to provide edit summaries. Voceditenore (talk) 09:21, 25 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Translation pleaseEdit

There are three bits of English on this page I don't quite understand.

  1. "The company reaches over 75,000 people from North Carolina and South Carolina" What does "reach" mean? Sell tickets to?
  2. "Professional leadership has become precedence throughout the company, with such men as...." Does this mean that in the past the company wasn't professional?
  3. "Founded in 1948 by the Charlotte Music Club, Opera Carolina is a product of the 1986 merger" How can something be founded in one year, and then be the product of something else in a different year? Could I get some help, please? Thanks, almost-instinct 16:20, 20 December 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Pretty dire. I hadn't looked in detail at this article for years. I've clarified the merger bit, re-written the ungrammatical and nonsensical leadership bit, and removed the "reaches 75,000 people" bit, at least until its meaning is clarified and a reliable independent source is provided for whatever that meaning is.
