  1. Sounds like Michael Henson of the Minnesota Orchestra might be good in this this position.

  2. I’d be happy to write Michael Henson a completely sincere reference.

  3. Let’s all recommend Michael Henson for the job, because there will be more than a few of us here in the Twin Cities calling for him to relinquish his job with the Minnesota Orchesta

  4. Hmm… perhaps an opportunity to insert a double agent and turn things around?….

  5. Orchestral management anywhere is career suicide. Might as well do it for lots of money in a tropical paradise, than for a joke salary in a grey British city…
