For the sake of the classical music community in Los Angeles, would Martin Bernheimer please submit his resume and apply for the position of Executive Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic that Ernest Fleischmann recently vacated ("Fleischmann to Paris Opera," by Daniel Cariaga and Marc Shulgold, Nov. 27).
At last, someone would be at the helm to assemble suitable programs. Helicopters would no longer torment the Hollywood Bowl; I suppose it could be domed.
Bernheimer would be at the Music Center, in charge, to see that something is finally done about those lousy acoustics he's constantly irritated by.
He'd see to it that people patronize the Bowl only to hear music, rather than expecting the uncivilized outdoor dining and all-too-comfortable evening with friends under the stars of a warm summer night. Fireworks with classical music are for slobs in bowling shirts, and a strict dress code could eliminate the need for so much as a sparkler.
