The Cleveland Orchestra Debate Rages On


I would like to say "thanks" for just beginning to expose the corruption that goes on in the classical music world ["Sour Notes," February 14]. As a former student at the Cleveland Institute, I know, as does everyone else, that these accusations against Preucil are true. Why CIM and the Cleveland Orchestra havn't stepped in and done something before serious damage is done is beyond me. Just wanted to say that I really appreciate the article you wrote... keep up the fabulous work!
