Well written blog post about Junichi firing

Check out this post, You're Great; Get Lost! (also available here), a well written, biting review of the motives and repercussions of firing Junichi Hirokami as Columbus Symphony Music Director.

After having very publicly fired their music director for having protested against trying to gut the orchestra, I wonder who the board thinks will agree to take his place? The world is full of conductors looking for music director jobs, of course. But ones on the level of Hirokami are few and far between. Good luck in convincing someone to work for a board that just fired the last guy for being as honest as he was competent.
