In a follow-up story to the ongoing Masur tour cancellation, this remark showed up in MusicalAmerica.com today:
"Osmo Vänskä, music director of the Minnesota Orchestra, was drafted for four, including the kickoff in Santa Barbara, followed by Los Angeles, San Diego and Davis, Calif. But he had to beg off before San Francisco, as he had previously committed to a lead a community orchestra concert in rural Minnesota on that date."
Funny, last time I drove to Bloomington, it didn't look all that rural !
