We have received a recording of Michael Henson’s stumbling appearance before the state legislature in Minnesota. Henson is president of the Minnesota Orchestral Association, whose musicians he has locked out since October. He makes a brief statement, and is then battered by Alice Hausman, chair of the Capital Committee, which is looking into claims that the MOA concealed certain facts to obtain $14 million of state money for the refurbishment of its building.
The recording has been edited by Emily E Hogstad, who provides a transcript of the session on her website, Song of the Lark. Listen here:
