Announcements for Auditions, competitions, and the results

Thomas Maurice Booth wrote:when a qualified, experienced, and simply outstanding player does audition, they may be dismissed at the whim of the committee. "Oh, no one played up to standards" they may say. Why then are some of these dismissed candidates given trial opportunities with the orchestra? Hasn't the committee established that they cannot play up to their "godly" level?... But at the same time, many of them are probably too busy playing "god" to have thought much about it...


Having been on both sides of the committee process (in a ROPA orchestra), and also both sides of a publicly traded corporation hiring process, I have to say that the orchestra process is FAR MORE FAIR to the applicant, qualified or not.

Anybody win the damned thing yet?
All that, plus $8.00, will get you a venti at Starbucks.
Or in my case, a large can of Folgers.

Though I now tread over the line of confidentiality, I think one can look at this "random" map (below) and see where there is an experienced person located who could easily walk into to any tuba audition and make any committee "smile"...yet this is one of those mentioned who has stated that they prefer to stay right where they are.

Just out of curiosity, is that the location of a professor or the principal tubist of the ISO?

-edit-
I thought about this shortly after, But I was thinking of Bloomington.

I though tomorrow was Audition #1 and that there would be a second audition with more candidates in March? The orchestra would then pick after that. Could be wrong though.
