    I wouldn’t consider trying to restore dignity and integrity to the RPO by removing Charles Owens and whatever it is he has done to damage the RPO brand with our community as ‘shananigans’. If Remmereit must go..and Owens doesn’t join him, everybody who loves the RPO in this community will lose. This whole mess, initiated by Owens, can only be characterized as ‘sad’…sad, disappointing and totally unnecessary. Would somebody connected with the RPO board have the integrity to tell us just exactly what the Harmony project said about Mr Owens. Its only fair you know. That silence speaks volumes.

    Balance takes a holiday when the writer in her very first paragraph states that she continues to support the firing of Remmereit. Everything that follows carries a ‘taint’ or tacit bias when the reader already knows the author has taken sides. Sorry…not balanced. A tactical error in my humble opinion.
    And what ‘world class’ conductor is going to want to come here when he knows that his contract can be unitlaterly broken and that such actions so greatly displease the audience he is charged to entertain? It has reached the point where the only way this fiasco can be put to rest is a fresh start…without this current Board’s leadership. As they say….the hostilities may eventually cease, but there won’t be peace. Just an end of hostilites, with all the components of the problem still in place —musician against musician, musican against patrons, patrons against Board and that feel-good tingle many once had when looking forward to an evening at the Eastman will have been scarred in the wake of all this ill will. Already, its just not the same. If this is what the Board feels is the way to treat their patrons—without taking a large number of concert goers and ticket buyers strong displeasure into consideration–that Board is not worthy of their office.
