It's been that way for 25 years...
All of us Canadian players take that for a fact!
This is a lot of us guys' (I don't play pro anymore, didn't take the audition, but it was my dream job) dream job, and some great players flew out and practiced long hours for that eventhough they knew of that FACT.
The least the jury pannel could have done is listen to(a least some of) them more...THey might have been surprised

These are all good players!!! What kind of players are they looking for? May be it is just a strategy to see who would come from the International ! I believe there is enough good players (even just in Quebec) to fill this position. I will be curious who will apply from the International side (probably more American players because of the proximity of the city).
It's still up.

In defense of the OSM panel- these musicians are charged with maintaining the very high standards of the orchestra and replacing an outstanding tubist, Dennis Miller. Those are big shoes to fill!
I have been on numerous audition panels and have never heard discussion of going international before the audition.
Auditions are a pain in the ass. There is nothing an audition panel likes better than finding someone in the first round.
The OSM has an outstanding record of hiring Canadian musicians.
In order to win a major orchestra principal position audition, you need to be a great player having a great day. Is it not conceivable that the top players auditioning that day did not play their best? Remember the first round is screened, so reputation is meaningless.
This is an important job in a great orchestra that is not going to be given away. It will have to be earned.
Good luck everyone in the international round. Bring your "A" game!
