Curious mindset of the MOA? …SD reply…

With all due respect, Greater, your statements seem to be politically incorrect, in that there appears to be one mindset the orchestra players present to the public and another that they actually live with. You seem to be speaking of the latter.

Ironically, don’t we have to wonder how anyone at the MOA, and perhaps even without realizing it, OV, could allow this unbearable situation to continue without, to some extent at least, embracing the idea that players are entirely replaceable, that there are far more qualified people available than there are positions, and that they feel certain they can get these players to perform at a level even those at Carnegie Hall will accept as the ‘new and improved’ MO, whether through actual musical coaching or a brilliant media campaign?
