The Partial Observer published an article of mine yesterday which examines just how entrenched some exclusionary behaviors are in this business. That’s not to say these behaviors are initiated out of malice, but they exist as hurdles when reaching out to a community nevertheless.

Do you have any personal experiences with pretentious behavior inside the world of classical music?
