Thanks, Violin Concerto, for starting this thread.
Goldsborough's resume is impressive, combining business sense and personal involvement in the arts. It's a promising change, and congratulations to the Board for selecting this candidate.
Parallel to this story is Pam Gardiner's move from Executive Director to a newly created position with the title, Executive Vice President for Artistic Affairs. She is also In-House Counsel.
I suspect we'll see other administrative changes at MCB in the coming season. The search for a new Artistic Director to replace Edward Villella when he retires at the end of the 2012-2013 season, has already begun.
Some of these changes -- especially those related to the financial oversight and personnel issues -- are probably long overdue. Who knows what will happen. Speaking for myself, I just hope the company retains its Balanchine-centered training and repertory as it moves into the future.
Good luck, Mr. Goldsborough.
