Check out the terrible news about U.S. Armed Forces musicians here.
Here are the facts, as published by the Musicians of the Fort Worth Symphony, AND one individual musician's take on all of the "dis-chord" on the ground. It is more than painfully obvious that management is making little effort in development.
In Hartford, Steve Collins has been named Executive Director, ending the very odd arrangement in which the Landlord was also CEO of the symphony. That at least lends more transparency to the organization. Of course, the organization still remains strapped for cash, AND they just created an Assistant Conductor position! Go figure....
There's less than good news out of Baltimore. I'm digging into that.
There is also some good news out there. For example:
- In Detroit, cash for every musician.
- In Kansas City, endowing the Assistant Conductor position.
