Talk about age discrimination!!! Mel Kaplan is as vital and energetic as any thirty year old. His talent and experience are beyond description. Mel Kaplan gave Vermont a special gift, and now because someone feels that he has control over the weather(rainy summers in the past few Years) that contributed to the loss of revenue of the Mozart Festival, he has outlived his usefulness. Shame on the board. We will miss you Mel!!! 1
