Conductor exits after hiring sex offender
Parents alerted to videographer’s past
The New England Conservatory is sending letters to 6,500 parents of current and former prep school students who were videotaped by a registered sex offender during concerts, rehearsals, and classes over the last decade. In the letters, conservatory officials say the videographer was engaged as a private vendor by a faculty member and has since been dismissed. School officials said the faculty member -- whom they did not identify -- has been disciplined. There have been no allegations of abuse.
