Heres a little bit of the story from the Montreal Gazette but click here for the whole thing.

McGill University music student Eric Abramovitz was among the top clarinetists in Canada.

In late 2013, Abramovitz applied for a full two-year scholarship to complete his bachelors degree at the Colburn Conservatory of Music in Los Angeles.

If accepted, he would study under Yehuda Gilad, considered one of the best clarinet teachers on the planet.

A month later, Colburn sent an email to Abramovitz. He had been chosen.

Except Abramovitz never got the email.

Jennifer Lee, a fellow McGill music student and Abramovitzs girlfriend at the time, did. They had started dating in September 2013, and within a month he was staying at her apartment almost full time. He trusted her. He let her use his laptop. He gave her his passwords.

Scared he would move away and perhaps no longer be in a relationship with her, Lee deleted the email. She sent the Colburn Conservatory of Music an email, pretending to be Abramovitz, refusing the offer because he would “be elsewhere.”

Go here for the full story which ended up in court with McGill being awarded $350,000.

Well, looks like he is making out well despite it. Every great Clarinetist has a great psychopath standing behind him…https://t.co/PrlyKqjoD3
