Why did no classical critic review Jackie's Avery Fisher debut?main
Jackie Evancho, 11 year-old contender in America’s Got Talent, has topped the US classical record charts this year.
So why, when she makes her Lincoln Center debut to a ‘mostly-filled’ hall, was no classical critic sent to assess her performance? Were the editors afraid of backlash? Did the critics chicken out? Enlighten me someone.
Jon Caramanica, who reviewed for the Times, covers mostly rock and pop. And granny concerts, apparently.
