Based on reader feedback, it seems the Report to the Special Committee of the Board of Trustees of The Cleveland Orchestra link in yesterday’s article was something easily missed. Nonetheless, it contains critical information to begin developing a comprehensive perspective on the topic.
Regardless if you’re still forming your own thoughts, engaging in online discussions, or have face to face conversations you absolutely need to process everything from the report before going too far down those paths.
News reports have been great, but the initial crop of articles mostly follow the talking points from the Cleveland Orchestra’s press statement, which provides a fraction of the information found in the report (not to mention filter out any negative conclusions from the report about institutional behavior).
The table of contents, in and of itself, demonstrates why this is must-read material:
- Scope of Investigation
- Naming Conventions and Confidentiality
- Key Findings
- William Preucil
- Findings of Sexual Misconduct Committed by Preucil
- Awareness of Preucil’s Misconduct by Orchestra Management and Members of the Board
- Statements by Preucil
- Massimo La Rosa
- Findings of Sexual Misconduct Committed by La Rosa
- Board and Management Awareness of La Rosa’s Conduct
- Statements by La Rosa
We’ll be taking a deeper dive into the report next week. In the meantime, you can download a copy from Cleveland Orchestra’s website:
And just in case it becomes unavailable, I saved a copy, which you can download here.
