    If Eun Sun Kim arrives to the organisation where I worked, I would too find another job.

    • Notanagent says:

      I agree. I find her to be a conducting mediocrity who made it to the top by marrying who is probably the world’s leading music agent.

  • Ian Robertson says:

    Thanks for noticing this bit of news…

  • Edgar Self says:

    Frequent poster Greg Bottini of San Francisco hasn’t posted in over a month. I’m starting to feel orphaned. Do any Bay Area friends know if he is well, at home, or on holiday?
