Conductor loses his top

This is the US residence of Jahja Ling, music director of the San Diego Symphony, after a storm toppled a pine tree onto his roof.

He was at home with his wife and two daughters in mid-afternoon and was heading upstairs when the tree came through the top of the house. External damage is extensive. Happily, no-one was hurt.



  • John Borstlap says:

    It seems that Mr Ling would do wise to have another good look into his repertoire.

  • EricB says:

    Now, he can happily conduct Walkure act 1 !
