How a whole orchestra mocks on a conductor

There are many stories on orchestras suffering under bad manners (or even worse) of a conductor. But the stories how orchestras defend themselves against mobbing or other extreme forms of debasement are rare.

An example comes from the orchestra in Byalostok (Poland). It suffered under its conductor very badly and decided to stand up during the rehearsal instead of playing. After a couple of minutes of monologue in front of the orchestra the conductor gave up, left the hall (and  got the pink slip a couple of months later). Find the video here.

  1. It’s wonderful that the members of this orchestra took action together. So many times bullied people are afraid to do what they did – indeed, we should all stand up to workplace bullies.
