DETROIT, Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- WADL-TV, Channel 38 in Detroit, shall be broadcasting a concert by the Musicians of the Detroit Symphony which shall be held at Christ Church Cranbrook on October 24, 2010, at 3:00 P.M., The management of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, which is in a labor dispute with the musicians, and which is not sponsoring or otherwise endorsing the concert, hired a New York law firm which sent a letter to WADL, ominously suggesting that the station might end up with liability in connection with the broadcast.
WADL-TV is providing the broadcast, free of charge to all involved, as a public service for the benefit of the community. We are disappointed that the management of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra should seek to instruct us on how we are to fulfill our responsibilities to our viewing public and that they should be expending scarce resources to hire an expensive New York law firm in a misguided attempt to create obstacles to the public's being able to view and hear a performance by an illustrious group of musicians of two of the masterpieces of the classical music literature.
The New York law firm's missive notwithstanding, the broadcast of the Musicians of the Detroit Symphony shall be aired, live, on WADL-TV. We invite the viewing public to tune in and enjoy what shall undoubtedly be an exhilarating experience.
A press conference shall be held on Friday, October 22, 2010, at 20733 West Ten Mile Road, Southfield, Michigan, commencing at 1:30 P.M., for further information.
