I’m told this was a no-hire
Max Tan, Erica Hudson, and Michael Turkell were finalists; they offered Michael another one year as Acting P2.
love the name
I heard turnout was very low for this audition (fewer than 20 total candidates) so maybe that was a factor?
That would be a bush-league factor.
Maybe this was a no hire because they wanted to renew the person they gave the job to? Seems to be a trend with a lot of orchestras this season?
Then they should just hire the person instead of using them in temporary contracts where they don’t have any negotiating power or stability.
