Letter: Salisbury Symphony’s loss

“There are none so blind as they who will not see.”

Throughout the years I have had the opportunity to work with many organizations that were in desperate need of redefinition. These groups typically had been around for a while and had operated under the mantra that “this is the way we’ve always done it.” Thus they needed a shot in the arm to become relevant in a culture that had moved on.

Enter James Dane Harvey. Dane brought to the symphony experience — his past clients included Andrew Lloyd Webber — and a fresh vision to an organization that definitely needed a vision. This vision included becoming real to a whole new audience — not just the typical symphony attendees, but those who could benefit and enjoy a musical format that they had not previously experienced. And the vision was implemented and worked. The Post had a nearly weekly article on what was happening with the symphony and it was exciting.

Sadly, the rulers of the symphony didn’t share the same vision, and Dane will be moving on.

Your vision and leadership will be missed. Good job, son.
