GUEST,keberoxu the Me2 Orchestras (US) (14) RE: the Me2 Orchestras (US) 09 Aug 20


With the success of three Me2/s in the New England region,
founder Ronald Braunstein and his partner, Caroline Whiddon,
had to change their relationship with the groups.

They remain, respectively, music director (Braunstein)
and executive director (Whiddon).

Braunstein and Whiddon met and married in Vermont,
co-founding the Me2/Orchestra there.
They have relocated to Massachusetts, however, and live
within the Greater Boston Metro area,
from which they continue their work with the orchestras.

It was decided that Braunstein would no longer commute to Vermont
to conduct his original ensemble there,
but would locate a new orchestra conductor
to lead the Burlington, Vermont rehearsals and performances.
Braunstein's Burlington replacement is a conductor
who identifies as female and uses she/her/hers,
and who has her own mental-diagnosis story.
