I was pleased to read a recent letter writer’s fond memories of attending Minnesota Symphony Orchestra performances at Northrop Auditorium. And, while I have no dispute with a subsequent letter writer’s assessment that Northrop’s acoustics were less than ideal, it is important to note that Northrop is currently undergoing a complete revitalization. The new venue, scheduled to reopen in April of 2014, will be a vast improvement, with state-of-the-art acoustics.



The writer is Northrop’s director.


HONEYBEE eradication

We can’t share planet?

Regarding the eradication of 30,000 honeybees in St. Paul: This is the best we can do? The area couldn’t have been cordoned off for public safety until it was resolved — a temporary human inconvenience? I can’t imagine how we would feel if some alien society decided that there were too many humans in one area (State Fair? Target Field?) and illogically decided that we were a problem.
