I would like to congratulate the board of directors of the Cliburn Foundation and its choice for executive director, Jacques Marquis.

In this time of diversity and quotas, it was refreshing to hear Marquis comment that they take the best on their selections for the competition without looking to see many are coming from China or having a good balance between males and females.

I’m from the old school also and think anytime other factors are entered, the quality is lowered.
