And again...note my original question: Why *is* that?
What is it about the selection process for a major orchestra that causes hiring committees to run things like a track and field event where the marathoners are selected by having pole vaulters note their performances in the 100 yard dash?
Can someone *really* be qualified for a seat in a major orchestra with ZERO experience in a mid-level professional orchestra?
If so, what does that say about the job responsibilities of a player in a major orchestra?
Think about it.
