Minnesota boss takes 15% pay cut in bid to save his jobmain
Michael Henson, the vastly unpopular president and CEO of the Minnesota Orchestra, has announced that he will fulfil a pledge to take the same pay reduction as the musicians. Whether this will save his seat is other matter. The musicians are due to meet the new chairman, Gordon Sprenger, next week and Henson’s future will be a major factor in their discussions.
Meantime, Osmo Vänskä has been dropping hints he might return as music director.
