San Antonio Symphony Gets Hit With A Data Breach

The 2/14/2017 edition of the San Antonio Express-News published an article by David Hendricks that reports on a data breach at the San Antonio Symphony (SAS). According to the report, hackers managed to secure “the names, birth dates, social security numbers and addresses for about 250 employees.” The data breach, which is thought to have occurred Monday and was discovered that afternoon, didn’t compromise data for donors, season-ticket holders or other patrons, said symphony President David Gross. “None (of those) were at risk.

Are You Subscribed To Adaptistration’s Per Post Email Notices? If So, You May Need To Resubscribe

You know what they say about best-laid plans and even though Adaptistration has relied on WordPress to deliver its per-article email notifications for the last several years, some recent changes in how they manage that process makes it a less reliable option.

Show of hands, who’s guilty of telling someone who doesn’t attend concerts regularly one piece or another is “too much” for a new listener? I certainly used to be that way.

Fortunately, not all the professors bought into that nonsense and the seeds they planted ultimately grew into waking up one day to realize that stuff was just a bunch of bunk. How often do you get caught up in that trap? When […]

Leading By Example In Seattle

We’re going to do something out of the ordinary today in that this will be a purely promotional post. Specifically, I want to draw attention to the Seattle Symphony Orchestra’s (SSO) Music Beyond Borders: Voices from the Seven concert that took place on 2/8/2017. The concert is unique and worth special attention for a few key reasons: It tackles the high profile political issue of the immigrant ban head-on by programming music from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. The concert was organized by the orchestra’s musicians and is free […]
