Horn professor is forcibly retired

Faculty at Ruce University’s Shepherd School of Music have been informed by the Dean that horn professor Biill VerMeulen has been retired, ‘effective immediately’.

In a message to media the school says: ‘Rice is aware of private images that have recently resurfaced on social media. Rice is reviewing the allegations and is prepared to investigate any reports of misconduct. As we review any new information, we will maintain the privacy of all involved. Rice does not tolerate sexual harassment or sexual misconduct by any member of the Rice community.’

VerMeulen has appeared in a couple of improper self-images that have been circulated online by a feminist activist. The pictures, seven years old, were sent in the course of a relationship to a lover, who later used them as revenge porn.

VerMeulen has been suspended for two months from his post as principal horn of the Houston Symphony.
