With conservative radio show host Dennis Prager hosting Haydn’s Symphony No. 51, which he has been invited to conduct as part of a fundraiser for the Santa Monica Symphony at Disney Hall, otherwise led by the orchestra’s music director, Guido Lamell, Andrew Apter asked that fellow musicians in the orchestra and members of the audience made uncomfortable by Prager’s positions on gays, Muslims and liberals boycott the performance.

Following this, Andrew Apter talked to Dennis Prager live on the Dennis Prager Show last Monday, August 7, 2017.
