This is effectively part 3 but I'm retitling it because it's gone well beyond audition discussion.
At this continuation point in discussion, questions include:
Who plays in community orchestras and why?
How feasible are certain models for semi-pro orchestras?
What's the process to get into orchestras of various types?
What's the playing level like in various types of orchestras?
