Our pals at Musical Toronto have been digging into the background of Jeff Melanson’s abrupt departure yesterday as president and CEO of the Toronto Symphony. A spot of cherchez-la-femme.

Michael Vincent writes: 

The filing (by Melanson’s estranged wife) also included details on an impropriety at the TSO involving a woman whom Melanson is currently dating. Melanson hired her as TSO’s Manager of Social Media in July 2015.

The Board learned she had been brought to the TSO by Melanson directly and deemed her employment “totally inappropriate”. She was terminated in November 2015.

With names. And picture. Go straight to Musical Toronto. Do not pass Go.

    You have to wonder, what does this guy possess to make seemingly intelligent women lose their s$%# like that?

  • Interested Bystander says:

    Just like The Donald. Look at his hands. Say no more!

  • Andy says:

    Dumb, dumb, dumb.

    The world was his oyster.

    As for the TSO’s board, dumber, dumber, dumber.
