I was rather fascinated to read this article about a 60 year old violinist suing the Young Concert Artists Inc. because allegedly their age limit of 19-26 for applicants discriminates against older musicians such as himself.
Interesting to read that he was actually allowed to take part in preliminary auditions! Is it really possible or indeed ethical to argue that age limits for awards and competitions are age-discriminatory?
