I won’t be taking the audition, but a quick question that popped into my mind...

Unless I’m making it up, I believe I saw or heard somewhere that Mr. Sanders has two Hirsbrunners, one of which is provided to him by the orchestra. Is this similar to Boston’s Nirschl, and Chicago’s York? In other words, would the winner of this audition have to utilize the orchestras Hirsbrunner?

When do polls close?
What percent of precincts reporting?

SLSO is more interesting than all of that! :)

Well, some tubas may not be tunable to A = 442. If the person playing one of those tubas made it to the section playing part of the audition, there could be a problem.


Thank God they tell us this 4 months before the audition.

I guess Derek found the hacksaw! :mrgreen:
