Michael Henson is up for an award…and you can help him win it!
I know my readers would love nothing more than to honor Mr. Henson with the prize. Think of how lovely the title will look on his resume. So go rouse yourselves and click. Don’t let Dr. Stanley Romanstein, PhD, or a nebulous “Other” run away with the prize. We’re the world-class orchestra; we’re the ones with the world-class managerial incompetence. For God’s sake, this is the man who told state representatives: “Um, first of all, we are in a stage of negotiations that whatever the cuts that we actually finally agree, we’ve not agreed, as part of that negotiation process with, uh, the musicians.” In what world is that sentence not eligible for some kind of award? So go vote! go vote! Help Henson run away this. I want to see that thing framed and hung in Hall, dammit. Perhaps outside the ladies’ bathroom, which is the same place where the Minnesota Orchestra previously displayed its ASCAP adventurous programming awards. (Actually not joking about that one, by the way…)
Behold the power of social media! You’re welcome, Michael Henson!
I will, however, forgive you if you see Henson forty points ahead of everyone else, and cast a sympathy vote for Dobby. Poor guy.
