...that the BSO is missing out on a bunch of players that are holding out for more money. 99.999% of qualified tubists out there would go for the job because of the orchestra, not the money. Even if they were offering twice the present minimum salary (about $1845 a week for the 2001-2002 season), I think they would have had basically the same players in the finals.
The statement "Doug Yeo deserves the best" bothers me, too. How about "the BSO deserves the best."
I think they'll be much more sucessful at hiring someone once Ozawa is out of the picture.
