Calif. Symphony’s Firing of Conductor Was Stealth Action

Barry Jekowsky, the East Bay orchestra’s founding conductor, had no idea that his employment was even under review, and he found out about his termination through news reports. The firing was voted on by only seven of the board’s 28 members, the rest of whom may not even have been notified of the issue.
