Peter Pastreich, 77, has been named  interim executive director of American Conservatory Theater.

Peter was successively executive director of the Nashville Symphony (1962-66), St Louis Symphony (1966-78), San Francisco Symphony (1978-1999) and Philharmonia Baroque (2009-11).

He’s considered one of America’s best mentors to music administrators.

Now, he’s taking a break from musicians.

    What ‘industry’ is ‘rotten to the core’ and what exactly is meant by that ?
