Orchestra of Ukraine Offers “Wonderful” Quid Pro Quo

To the Editor:

On Thursday evening, the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine offered a wonderful music performance to a very appreciative McCarter Theatre audience. It was a very wonderful evening with the Orchestra presumably being paid for their performance and with the audience showing their appreciation through their loud and extended applause. It was a wonderful example of a quid pro quo with presumably all parties, both audience and members of the Orchestra, receiving their just rewards. The difference between this quid pro quo and that receiving national attention is worth noting since the benefits provided by the Orchestra were not targeted at a single member of the audience but to the audience at large.

May we have many more such quid pro quos.
