So there it sat on the kitchen table: the International Musician, open to page 32, which lists... a “section violin” position open in the LA Phil, auditions in May.


Who put this here? Clearly my conniving husband had opened my union newspaper before I even had seen the mail, and he divined what might be of most interest to me.

It is...most interesting.

I am leaning towards it. :) I just hope I don't have to go through the whole crazy "standby" thing again, but I'm prepared to be tenacious if I do.
