Was this advertised in the International Musician?

I checked around online, and can't find it posted anywhere. Couldn't even find it on their website.

Thanks,
Steve

Will they be accepting tapes, or is this going to be an invite based on resume deal?

I'm still waiting for my rejection letter. I sent my resume about 2 weeks ago.

Is it soup yet? Did Cleveland send rejection notices via email last time? Has anybody heard anything?

Can someone tell me the source of this tape information? For instance, did you receive a letter or email "inviting" you to send in a tape? Or did you find this information on a website?

thanks...

Based on the composite list I have collected from more than 50 auditions, these are the top 6 excerpts asked. Amazing!

Seeing as how the list was only given to a few specific invited individuals, I would assume that randomly sending in tapes would be uncouth. Yes? :?:

It seems like anyone that sent a resume was sent the list (Unless I'm wrong). That's pretty standard practice.
Good luck to all, I hope they choose someone! :roll:

A random tape may be "uncouth" but if you are in audition shape, send in your tape anyway. What have you got to loose?

The only really uncouth thing to do is sending a tape which doesn't represent an acceptable performance for a major sympony audition.

You could always write the personnel manager and ask if you could send a tape. Apologize for missing the resume deadline and include your resume. In the meantime, make the best tape you can and don't send it in unless you think it sounds like the next principal tubist of the Cleveland Symphony.

May I inject some cynicism...these emails "inviting" tapes due Nov 28 barely give people 2 weeks to record...correct me if I am wrong, but wasn't the Cleveland audition earlier this year a zoo? As I recall reading, the original list of invitees to live auditions was fairly small, but the ranks of first rounders grew greatly when people complained, teachers wrote recommendations, etc...now here is the cynical thought: I believe that they are doing this to placate the masses (in other words, to tie people up with tape making instead of bombarding the personnel manager with requests for the first round).

Maybe some people will get a live audition solely as a result of the tapes, but I doubt it.
