"“Randy Whatley has helped Baltimore Symphony Musicians immensely in the time period--less than two full years--since we first engaged him. He has helped those of us on the Players Committee realize our long-held determination to get more musicians actively involved in our organizing efforts, all of which have supported the Committee in its collective bargaining with the Symphony. Out of 83 musicians, I believe that approximately 40-50 have been involved in various outreach, publicity, fundraising, and other activities, and many musicians not on the Committee have taken on leadership roles along the way. Our audiences, our citizens, our board and BSO management have seen the results of all this activity in the form of newsletters, public informal concerts at public libraries, etc. Some of my favorite aspects of Randy's work are his availability, his generosity, and his great ability to help us respond quickly to both predictable and unforeseen developments."
