Robert Birman has quit as chief executive of the Louisville Orchestra, claiming he had made ‘significant progress’.
Birman presided over a bitter shutdown last year, during the course of which he said that the public would not notice if he shrunk the orchestra to chamber size…. which he then proceeded ruthlessly to do.
His resignation comes within hours of Richard Dare’s at the New Jersey SO.
If there’s a domino effect at work, let’s hope it reaches Minnesota.
