The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra publicly admonished its principal flutist for her conspiracy-laden social media posts about COVID-19 and fraud in November’s presidential election.
The orchestra tweeted Saturday that it does not condone the “words or sentiments” expressed in the posts on the personal social media accounts of flutist Emily Skala.
“Ms. Skala does not speak for the BSO, nor do her statements reflect the core values or code of conduct grounded in humanity and respect,” orchestra officials announced.
The orchestra released the statement after being alerted to Skala’s posts by other social media users, BSO’s president and CEO told the Baltimore Sun, which first reported the public rebuke Tuesday.
“The BSO-musician relationship is different from that of a typical employer-employee; and, we have been partnering with our musician representatives to great success and will continue to do so in our recommitment to the critical work of diversity, equity and inclusion,” Peter Kjome told the Sun.
Kjome declined to indicate
