Letter from Michael Comins

To the DSO Board of Directors:

After failing to force a two-tiered system on the New York City Ballet Orchestra while causing a strike/lockout during the winter Nutcracker performances in 1999-2000 when she was president there, Anne Parsons brought these same anti-musician policies to the DSO. Also included in her NYCBO contract demands were tighter controls over the musicians’ workload. These demands were ultimately rejected as well.

I strongly suggest that the Board hire an Executive Officer more suited to the job.

    Thank you for clearing that up. It is,probably, why she was hired, here, but it won’t work. This is still America.
    I wonder, how did she handle the NY press and marketing? As well as ,here?
    In any event, again, thank you.
