Yesterday, we got the informational brochure for the upcoming season of the Springfield Symphony Orchestra:
You might wonder if perhaps the SSO is showing sympathy for the “Resistance” to the current duly elected President of the United States. Artistic types do tend to fall into the liberal camp. But Springfield, and its denizens, tend to skew a little more conservative than the people in St. Louis.
Perhaps the SSO is just trying to be topical and relevant with the unrest in the nation. However, I don’t think people are willing to presume impartiality so much these days.
I wonder if the choice of focus quietly costs the SSO support or season ticket holders. Time will tell, I suppose.
In a turn of events, the brochure arrived on the same day when a gunman opened fire on congressmen.
