Minneapolis has new mayor, no orchestramain
The outgoing mayor, R. T. Rybak, who did his best to shame the Minnesota Orchestra Association into taking back their musicians, has been rushed to hospital with a cardiac event. His successor, Betsy Hodges, will be sworn in on Saturday with full gay men’s chorus, a beat boxer, hip-hop star, improvisation theatre and more… but no orchestra. Minneapolis is no longer on the orchestra map.
Mayor Betsy should make it her priority to put it back.
