Dear Minneapolis Orchestral Association Management and Board of Directors,
I sent a polite and respectful email to the members of your Board of Directors today, indicating my anger and dismay over the full page ad that they took out in today’s Star Tribune.
As expected I heard back from none of them, until a moment ago. Mr. Warren E. Mack wrote me a four word reply: “and who are you?”
Please know that I did sign the letter with my full name. More to the point however, I would have assumed that the members of the MOA board, the stewards and protectors of the organization would have more manners and respect for the public TO WHOM THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE.
I did write Mr. Mack back introducing myself and giving him all of my contact information in the hopes that we could discuss this further. But I will also give my answer here: I am the audience, the patron, the music lover and the person for whom you are temporarily holding the Minnesota Orchestra in trust. I deserve your respect.
