Conductor is suspect in Danish Radio sex claim

Danmarks Radio has called in an external law firm to investigate two claims of sexual harrassment in the DR Girls’ Choir.

The complaints date back several years and the prime suspect is said by insiders to be a conductor.

The DR Girls’ Choir is made up of 50 young women aged 15 to 22.

It is headed today by conductor Phillip Faber, who is not a suspect.


  • Keen observer says:

    It doesn’t take a genius to find out that the current head of the National Arts Foundation was the long serving previous conductor.
    Just wait until the rotten state of Denmark hits the music conservatory, where the percussion professor has already been placed on leave with others soon to fall. Not too soon!

  • Eusebius says:

    something’s rotten in the state of Denmark.

  • Sue Sonata Form says:

    Not the legal institutions for an inquiry, but lawyers. Yep, that’s a fair process. Not.

  • Karl Keller says:

    Still the same issue with the leadership or lack of it at the Danish Radio Concert Hall (Kim Bohr)

  • Tamino says:

    Is it PC to have girls only choirs, not open for male and diverse humans? And what about the costumes? Pure sexism. Gender stereotypes. I think they should wear gender neutral uniforms.
    Also I see no people of color, no Asians. They should be ashamed these Danes. I guess they even predominantly sing Danish music? Abhorrent!!

  • Ricardo says:

    Sadly, I suppose it was only a matter of time. All I can say is that this choir is unbelievably good. My best wishes to them! Denmark is bloody lucky to have them.

  • Eusebius says:

    Is it PC to have Vienna Boys Choir, an all-male Vienna Philharmonic, or all-white-female Bolshoi Ballet?
    Please stop seeing the world through your American leftist woke prism.
