I'm sitting first chair for a pit I'm in, and I got an e-mail asking whether I'd like to be called Concertmaster, or Concertmistress. I went with Concertmaster in the end. I feel that the concertmistress title is kind of old fashioned...similar to the actor instead of actress rule.
Would it be better to be politically correct and give everyone the same title, or does anyone really care?
