The Philadelphia Story turns ugly

Peter Dobrin reports that the orchestra’s management is going to court to stop the player’s representatives from ‘harassing’ donors.

Buit who, here, is being harrassed? The management is playing with bankruptcy in order to dodge its pension obligations. The players and their union are warning potential donors of the personal consequences of such a move.

Instead of throwing away money on lawyers, the orchestra ought to accept its pension obligations and find its economies elsewhere. The present strategy will, in the end, cost far more than it saves.
