Top players fall silent as Detroit Symphony Orchestra fights for survival … this two-week old article in the Guardian is a better article about the DSO strike than anything that’s appeared in the local press. It gets a little deeper into management’s position and posits that as goes Detroit, so may go a lot of other American ensembles. Meanwhile, the Detroit Free Press reported this week that the new round of talks between musicians and management have broken down, and the management has canceled another two weeks of concerts into mid-December.
I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.
