I Told You So.
Today's SFCV Music News has a report from Jeff Dunn about SF Opera's Plan a Season workshop. He confirms that my own take on this subject was 100% correct: the governing factor in the US is money, in all its forms. SFS took an interesting tack by providing a list of works that more or less had to be programmed with some periodicity, a list of composers you had to rotate through, and a couple of free-for-all spots, then assigning point values rather than dollar values to determine what you could afford to perform. Well, their formula was pretty much my formula too.
