Agent Ted Kurland Monday accused a local German government office of canceling a concert booking for keyboardist/composer Chick Corea because of the performer's affiliation with the Church of Scientology.

Kurland faxed a protest letter to the media and supported his contentions with a letter he received from a German promoter.

That letter stated that Corea would be denied a concert booking in conjunction with the World Championships in Athletics, but did not specify why Corea's affiliation with Scientology would affect the booking. Kurland was not available for further comment.
