Orchestra Nova Artistic Director Resigns, Concerts Canceled

Music lover, especially of live music, here. We subscribed to San Diego Chamber Orchestra almost from the beginning, and to Orchestra Nova. I feel that it is up to the conductor to shape the music to convey the emotions he or she wants expressed. I don't need to see beaming violinists, or sad-faced cellists, in order to feel emotion from music. The food, the costumed actors, the intermission singers and dancers, are irrelevant to me - I generally ignore much of this. I come for the music, and I want to hear a good variety. Sometimes it seems that the programs are tending toward high-class Pops concerts - mostly bonbons, when we also need our protein and vegetables for a healthy musical diet!
