Jim Martinho explains:
I'm the Content Manager at TheBostonCalendar.com, and I also write a weekly email newsletter previewing upcoming events. A lot of the events on our calendar are user-submitted, and when I saw a listing for a performance of Mozart's Requiem at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross on Sunday, it seemed pretty innocent -- classical music, in a church, commemorating JFK's legacy? Sure, why not. So I mentioned the event in today's newsletter. Then I received an email from a reader who had been alerted by the Greater Boston Choral Consortium that the event's sponsor, the Schiller Institute, is one of LaRouche's primary organizations. Apparently they've been trying to recruit local singers into performing with their orchestra and duped at least one group, Chorus pro Musica, into emailing its members about the opportunity. The event listing also mentions "remarks of remembrance" to accompany the concert, which I'm guessing will be something other than a glowing tribute to JFK's legacy.
The concert is listed pretty innocently on the event calendars on Boston.com and ArtsBoston, and I'd hate for people to go without knowing who's really behind it (obviously I sent out a mea culpa to our newsletter group). Then again, it's at the same time as the Pats game Sunday so it might be a moot point.
