Controversy in Santa Monica

The musicians of the Santa Monica Symphony Orchestra are protesting conductor Guido Lamell's decision to invite Dennis Prager– a right-wing commentator renowned for his anti-minority views and inflammatory statements– to guest conduct the orchestra in Haydn's Symphony 51.

Prager has no conducting credentials or classical music training, and no explanation for the decision to grant him the podium has been given.
