Meeting to discuss future of the RPO

There is a meeting Thursday night on the future of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra.

Some people are still upset that the RPO Board of Directors voted in November to terminate music director Arild Remmereit and that contract dispute will be brought up at the meeting.

The decision has caused some people to withdraw their donations to the organization.

Thursday evening, supporters of the RPO and supporters of Remmereit will together address the future of the orchestra.

Remmereit will be at the meeting to present his vision for the future of the RPO. His attorney says the conductor wants to continue with the orchestra and the Board made its decision on faulty information, even possible fabrication.
