Music Festival disappoints

Dear Editor:

My wife and I have been patrons and annual visitors to the Aspen Music Festival for the past 10 years. It is with great sadness and regret to learn of David Zinman’s resignation.

Our financial support was given because we deeply believed in David’s approach to music education and especially his establishment of the Conducting Academy Orchestra. Two seasons ago, through Asadour Santorian, I met briefly with Mr. Alan Fletcher. I suggested he contact me via e-mail to discuss additional financial support on my part. I was never contacted.

We are not expecting to visit the Aspen Music Festival this summer and have withheld our annual financial donation.
