With all due respect to the amazing players that retired, the BSO is leaning on the offensive side by giving the impression that no one is good enough to play in there orchestra. Simple fact: Chester is gone. Not only have established professionals auditioned, but some incredible young talent made it thru the muck also. Hire someone, and let them develop thru the tenure process. I think I would be less offended if the didn't have an audition and just appointed someone to the position, like in Jacksonville. Boston is stuck up and snobby, and they are not good enough to be that way.
