Positive! Energetic! Experience!

Since I have such a broad readership so interested in the Minnesota Orchestra, I felt a moral obligation to pass this information along. I’m sure one of y’all will do great at this job.

    Did they spend all their endowment on lawyers fees already?

    As in they are ‘positive’ that patrons you call will be ‘energetic’ about the ‘environment’ created by this assault on the musicians. That would be ‘challenging’ and if they get hung up on a lot, ‘fast paced’. Kind of all makes sense in that context.

    That repeated phrase says it all.
    “Work for people who are too depressed to edit this advertisement, because what’s the point, you’re gonna get hung up on. Commission…HA!!”

    They should offer the gig to the musicians. *extremely tongue in cheek*

    Hmmm. . . the direct MNO link claims that Osmo is still the director. Oversight? Wishful thinking? Manipulation?
    Embarrassing, yes.

      I contacted the Orchestra ticket office. They say, and in fact have removed Osmo Vanska’s name from the website. But in the “program” for 2013-14 he is still listed as conducting “Future classics” in January 2014. Never mind that this whole, progressive project has been torpedoed by the new MOA artistic and business model. The dishonesty of the MOA is becoming no longer laughable.

  6. I would sure like to see the script! —— “Yes, we are selling tickets to concerts” UUHA ” Well, no technically, we don’t have any upcoming concerts” UUHA UUHA “We DO have a world class orchestra, but at the moment, we are trying to starve them into submission so no, technically, they are not performing at the moment.” UUHAAA “There is also an endowment and you can donate to it whether there is music playing or not.”
    ———–“Perhaps you would like to have a chair named after you”

    The MOA never ceases to amaze–I am open-mouthed at their audacity, to say nothing of their denial. I am glad I resigned from that unbelievable organization!

  8. Frankly, I think they should have the MOA board members make the phone calls, and hear the anger and frustration from their previous supporters firsthand!

    I could totally do this. You reckon I could get hired? Here’s my CV if the MOA Call center HR reads this. :)

    1)Super POSITIVE!
    2)Love challenges!
    3)Excellent at fundraising!!!

    And on top of that I have TONS of initiative and EXTRAORDINARILY inexpensive to employ . I reckon you wouldn’t need to pay me at all or go to the trouble of giving me a donor list because I know EXACTLY who to call.
