To Whom It May Concern:
I am in receipt of an article written by Ted Shen dated August 5, 1994 [Critic’s Choice], which has an error. The viola soloist he speaks of, Rozanna Weinberger, is credited as “a former principal violist with the New York Philharmonic.”
Please be aware that Rozanna Weinberger has never been a member of the New York Philharmonic, much less a principal. Further, this person has never been engaged as a substitute member of the New York Philharmonic.
I expect that a correction will be made. Thank you.

Ted Shen replies:
I stand corrected. Weinberger served as an assistant to the Philharmonic’s former principal violist William Lincer while studying for her master’s at the Juilliard School.
