Some of you who are involved in the world of chamber music may be
interested in the latest turn of events in the ongoing litigation
regarding three of the members of the Audubon Quartet vs: fired member
David Ehrlich.

Concerned members of the Blacksburg, Virginia community have authored a
declaration/petition, which calls for an end to David Ehrlich's treatment
of his former colleagues of the Audubon Quartet, Doris Lederer, and Clyde
(Tom) Shaw and Akemi Takayama.  When these three quartet members fired
Mr. Ehrlich in February 2000 in order to preserve the musical integrity,
organizational health, and viability of the Audubon Quartet, he chose
to respond with lawsuits.

After a long series of misadventures with courts in Pennsylvania and
Virginia, plus the federal Bankruptcy Court, the three members of the
Quartet are now faced with imminent court-ordered liquidation of their
personal property, including musical instruments and one home.  Mr.
Ehrlich will collect his former colleagues' worldly goods on the grounds,
among others, of having lost his job at Virginia Tech.

If you would like to express support for the members of the Audubon
Quartet, you can sign a community declaration and/or a petition to Dr.
Charles Steger, President of Virginia Tech (the Quartet's former employer
and Mr. Ehrlich's current employer), asking for his assistance in
resolving the dispute without punitive confiscations.

For more information on how to express your disapproval of David Ehrlich's
actions, please visit the following website:

For those of you who are not familiar with the gory details of the
Quartet's fight, the above link has a fact sheet which outlines the
history of the matter.

I have many friends in the chamber music community who are outraged at
the courts treatment of the (3) Quartet members who fired Mr. Ehrlich,
and the potential financial windfall the court's decision will bring
him.

Isn't the business side of classical music wonderful?
