Young music director under attack for Jewish New Year concertsmain
Concertgoers in Louisville have turned on their incoming music director, Teddy Abrams, for scheduling concerts of Jewish-American composers over the Jewish New Year holiday.
Abrams has responded with this statement: ‘As most probably know, I am Jewish and I have the highest respect for our traditions and holy days. Unfortunately, the Louisville Orchestra does not own its performance venues, and scheduling concerts, rehearsals and artists is an immensely complex logistical challenge. We will make every effort in the future to avoid these conflicts.’
