«I have handled the complaint well because the orchestra has always been with me. They have believed in me and I have believed in them, to the point that I have always felt their support, another thing is how all this has affected the members of my family. These are the words of Karel Mark Chichon when asked about the controversy that arose last year after being denounced for alleged workplace harassment. It all started when the spokesperson for Ciudadanos in the Cabildo de Gran Canaria, Ruymán Santana, demanded that the executive committee of the orchestra control certain contracts behind which favoritism could be sensed in reference to the hiring of the mezzo-soprano Elina Garanca, wife of the director, while investigating whether Chichón's own hiring might not have been in accordance with the law. .
