That is pretty big news.  The question now is who benefits more on the release, The Cadets or the LB Foundation?

My vote goes to Cadets. Whether 2017 was you're favorite or less than your favorite, no one can deny that negotiating with the Leonard Bernstein  Foundation and getting the rights for "Mass" in the first place was a huge accomplishment, given how finicky and at times inconsistent the Leonard Bernstein Foundation can be, which schools and local theater groups can attest. They lose no credibility if they do not perform Bernstein next year, though I would have loved to see a "West Side Story" redo, or "On the Town" and some have suggested "Candide" or "Wonderful Town." The foundation will be fine since this is the centennial year of Bernstein's birth.,

He's depraved on account of being deprived.

The person they had negotiated the contract with at LB's foundation is no longer there.  From what I understand, they bought the Cadets out of their obligation for the next two years, including the arrangement with the NY Philharmonic.

If that's indeed true, that's too bad for the Cadets. Hopkins was really excited about the possibility of working with the NY Phil, and that would've been a great opportunity for the students.

Hope this doesn't change audition numbers.

notice that the person* who started the comment said it was rumor. However, it has been publicly known that Cadets were slated by DCI to begin the early season tour in California, thus missing the previously slated concerts with the NY Philharmonic in Central Park. If anything, perhaps the Cali tour would be a positive draw for auditions.

*George Dixon stated the first rumor. ChattyT gave his own version later.

The rumored news may sound bad, but imho there is a lot more opportunity and excitement available to GH and the kids by *not* being shackled to a restrictive agreement with T.O.O.L.B.  Finding/creating opportunity/excitement is one of GH's strengths... and time is on his side to turn this into a good thing.
