The San Jose Symphony Page
A few thoughts about my former job.
Many people ask me what happened to the San Jose Symphony. Its a long sad story, so, from time to time, I am going to put down some of my thoughts on this subject and the larger issue of what is happening to "Classical Culture" in this country in general. Suffice it to say that something IS going on, and its not good. Many orchestras have folded and others are in trouble. For now I'm just going to post a cartoon that appeared recently in a local paper that sums up what some people think we should have been in order to be "relevant". Yes its a joke. Yes there is a grain of truth in it.
