Meet the New York Philharmonic All-Stars, an online campaign to engage concertgoers with the top players.
Missing from the set is the principal horn, Phil Myers.
Phil has been principal horn since January 1980 and is still listed as such on the NY Phil website. The orchestra has refused to comment on reports of a disciplinary issue that led to his departure.
Local media have kept shtum. But Phil’s absence from the all-stars appears to confirm he has blown his last.
