NY Phil fires 2 players for "misconduct"

No mention of the nature of the "misconduct" and I'm sure there is no point in anyone here speculating, but wow.

Remember to keep this conversation civil everyone. Everybody here is against sexual abuse.

An interesting side note: the NPR story includes a link to a tax filing by the NY Phil listing its five highest paid musicians as of 2016 (ranging from $410K to $345K)

Centanni - Principal Associate Concertmaster
Brey - Principal Cello
Myers - Principal Horn (former)
Wang - Principal Oboe
McGill - Principal Clarinet

Interesting insight.

There's a typo there - Myers (was) Principal Horn, and he's no longer there.

This is more or less normal, with concertmaster (which was vacant at this time I believe) first. Principal Oboe is usually the highest paid woodwind player. Principal Trumpet is often in the top 5, but Phil Myers was there for a long time...until he was sent packing for misconduct.

Being highly paid can make you think you're more irreplaceable than you really are.

Numerous recent example of that in the entertainment field.
