Yannick asks Joe Biden to appoint secretary of state for the artsmain
The music director of the Metropolitan Opera has published an eve-of-inauguration letter to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
Much of his letter is pure flannel, given that the inauguration is taking place without a single artist of the classical arts, and that the Biden team have more burning isssues on their agenda.
However, he does make one strong point: the arts in the US need a champion at Cabinet level. Will Biden be the one to open that door?
