A sharp eyed Adaptistration reader, Jonathan from St. Louis, recently sent me a note pointing out that I’ve never bothered to list some of the primary sources for direct information regarding the St. Louis negotiation impasse.
Throughout the ongoing negotiation impasse in St. Louis both musicians and management have used the internet as a way of communicating their views to the public.
- The website maintained by the SLSO musicians at: http://stlsymphony.org/
- Management has been using the established SLSO website to present their side: http://www.slso.org/
Another useful resource of information and a great deal of opinion is the very lively discussion board maintained by STLtoday.com and moderated by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch classical music critic, Sarah Bryan Miller: http://forums.stltoday.com/viewforum.php?f=19
You can join in the conversations and add your own voice to the discussions. I think having a real time resource like the discussion board is a great idea and the more people outside of St. Louis participating, the better.
Of course, you can always find out what’s happening right here at Adaptistration (including an archive entry specifically for all of the articles related to St. Louis) and the continuously updated Arts Journal Music News Headlines.
Thanks again to Jonathan in St. Louis and all of the sharp eyed readers who take the time to point out the holes in Adaptistration’s offerings.
