What sort of future for MO players re change of management? SD reply…

If I were in the shoes of the MO players I would never trust anyone in their management again, no matter who they are. Even if the Board replaces Henson, Davis and Campbell, there is no assurance, unless the players get to choose them, that they will have any focus other than the nebulous concept of keeping the ‘organization’ viable (as though it doesn’t even have human components).

The MOA seems to think it will have its pick of starving but brilliant young graduates of the best schools, with which they can ‘plug-and-play’ their way to a ‘younger and better’ orchestra. This sort of thinking is, of course, sheer insanity; but then, so is the prolonged agony of this lockout.
