Why is the Symphony's listing the shortest one in this list, along with "Arctic Monkeys?" Why not list all 3 pieces they are playing. Why not mention the soloist who is playing a concerto on the program? Too much trouble to add those extra few words? It's the largest arts organization in the city and needs some help. Thank you for considering a slightly more comprehensive view. It would only take a few more words..

The article could have addressed the Buju Banton controversy as well.
Buju Banton, who celebrates the lynching of Gay people, and had his first concert cancelled in Columbus, will be peddling his hate at the Alrosa Villa, where they apparently support lynching Gays and setting them on fire.

Buju Banton (Alarosa Villa 10/02/09) is famous for a song, "Boom Bye Bye," which says "Queers have to die." The song was written more than 20 years ago and his management says that he has "moved on." His managment claims that he has stop performing the song. In fact there is a YouTube video of Buju performing "Boom Bye Bye" in Miami in 2006
You can hear Buju say "There is no end to the war between me and faggots" on this YouTube video http://www.youtube.com/watch... "BUJU BANTON FIRE BURN BATTY."
At some of his concerts, Buju is said to make homophobic comments throughout his performance. http://www.stabroeknews.com/2009/letters/09/2...
Buju Banton makes no apologies for his calls for the deaths of LGBT people http://www.youtube.com/watch... "Elephant Man Buju Banton Shabba Ranks boom bye bye"
Buju Banton has definitely not "moved on." His performances cannot be considered "postitive" or "uplifting." This is not about "One Love" or "Positive Vibrations."
