That discussion has sprawled quite a bit, across questions like:
What's the expected level of playing to be able to successfully audition for a professional orchestra?
How do you prepare for such auditions successfully?
If you fail an audition, can you re-audition again, and does the previous failure count against you?
is it possible to achieve two things at the same time: the most fair and unbiased audition process; and the audition process that results in the best selection?
What's the appropriate standard to judge amateur playing by, versus student playing, versus pro playing?
Someone also emailed me a question that they didn't want to post, and which wasn't touched on in the previous thread, which is: How do you discover the freeway philharmonics in your area, or other paid orchestral openings, and their auditions?
