In Washington state, the Everett Superintendent is being sued by a Jackson High graduate for preventing the school’s wind ensemble from playing an instrumental version of Franz Biebl’s Ave Maria at their graduation. Too religious, said the superintendent. An alto saxophonist has filed a free-speech suit.
I can’t see that the musicians had a constitutional right to play the music of their choice. You can see where that would lead. But the superintendent’s decision seems silly.
