Congratulations to both you and Pacific Symphony!
Wonderful news for you personally and for the Pacific Symphony too! Congratulations to you both!! The sad part for us your admiring faithful readers is that this means the end of your reviews of that orchestra’s concerts, doesn’t it? Will you at least be able to continue reviewing other classical music performances?
Thanks, MarK. I’m not sure yet what it all means for my reviewing. Still working that out.
Yay! Good news for Orange County.
Susan and I are thrilled with and for you. Congratulations!
Yay!! Great news! We’re subscribers to the symphony so will look forward to seeing your work!
Well, this is great news!! Congratulations, Tim.
What immensely great news this is! Bravo to the Pacific Symphony and John Forsyte for recognizing that with the decline in the business model for journalism, symphony orchestras must take assertive steps to ensure that authoritative writing and commentary tells the story of music and the story of the local symphony orchestra. And bravo to Tim Mangan for being the kind of ethical, fair and knowledgeable music critic that would make a major symphony orchestra (and its music director) comfortable and respectful enough to make him part of their team. What a win-win for the community.
Indeed, your news is a cause for celebration, Tim! This opportunity represents a perfect fit for you, the PSO, and shot in the arm to all of us local classical music fans who have been so enriched by your voice within the community all these years. Scott Duncan echoed my sentiments exactly –this truly is a win-win for everyone involved. Best of luck in your brand new endeavor.
Congratulations Tim! Wishing you all the best!
Could this be part of a deeper, darker conspiracy by arts organizations to eliminate the possibility of negative reviews?
This is truly WONDERFUL!!!
Great to see this- congratulations!
Looking forward to the new blog and articles. Will you also be contributing notes to the concert program?
Congratulations Tim — this is great news!
