Statement on the Allegations Against James Levine

Last Sunday, WHRB​ ​was​ disappointed to​ receive news of​ ​allegations​ ​of​ ​sexual​ ​abuse​ ​made​ ​against​ Mr. ​James​ ​Levine, Music​ Director​ ​Emeritus​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Metropolitan​ ​Opera.​ ​Given ​Mr.​ ​Levine’s​ centrality in the classical music world,​ ​we​ are deeply disturbed to learn of his long history of sexual abuse and its neglect at many institutions we respect and cherish.
