This week’s panel:


This week’s topics include:

  • Yet another DSO update. The orchestra threatened to cancel the remaining four months of the season. The musicians called their bluff.
  • Governer Sam Brownback (R) of Kansas has signed an executive order eliminating the Kansas Arts Commission, a state-level analog of the NEA.
  • Bachtrack reported the most performed works and composers on orchestral concerts and operas in 2010. Some results were pleasantly surprising. Others were not.
  • The hashtag #dwg (dead white guys) has blown up Twitter over the last week or so, stemming from the complete lack of female composers on the New York Philharmonic’s 2011-2012 season.
  • The San Francisco Contemporary Music Players have a new artistic director, percussionist Steven Schick.
  • Max Frankel thinks you should wait until the year 2111 to write that opera about Egypt’s recent revolution (and that John Adams should have waited a bit longer to write Nixon in China).
