You know me as a regular Orchestra Symphony Balear season ticket holder, plus I attend many other musical activities carried out by members of the Orchestra.As they have been through an absolute nightmare in the last year, plus, very nearly disappearing , due to lack of funds, their great shining light and leader through all this, has been Joseph Vincent who has carried them through often at his own cost, and has inspired them to advance, artistically and broadened their horizons.
He has a very good international orchestral experience, and travels all over the world, additionally being involved with the world Orchestra.
Why then with less than 24 hours advice was he pushed out and dropped as director, in a totally unexpected and brutal way by señor Marcelino Minaya, with the lame excuse that he ( Joseph Vincent) has not sufficient international experience!
More than anything I think this way of dismissing the director of music, the manner, was thoroughly cruel and thoughtless especially after the “tempest” that he has carried them through.
Anyway Ray, hope to see you in any future concert and will be interested to read your view on this sad affair.
