BEST REAL ESTATE SPECULATOR
By announcing his intention to purchase a new house in Charlotte, Christopher Warren-Green vaulted over six other candidates vying with him for the position of music director of our world-class Charlotte Symphony Orchestra. In our view (speaking for both local critics who rated the candidates), those other six merely elicited better music from the orchestra, without grasping the higher wisdom of acceding to the wishes of Symphony’s board and administration in the matter of agreeing to settle in the Queen City to get the job. The best schools in the Carolinas are no doubt vying for the privilege of enrolling the new maestro’s hyphenated offspring. Welcome to Charlotte, Chris — you definitely belong here.
