The terror of the auditionThe terror of the audition
Audition. The word can unleash terror in performers of all kinds, but perhaps none more than musicians seeking to fill scarce symphony orchestra openings. As virtuosos pour out of music conservatories, the stakes grow greater because the supply-demand ratio does not favor the job seeker. One common affliction is the freak-out: that moment when a contender's nerves upset the unimpeded stream of facility developed over long years starting in childhood and filled with eight-hour-a-day practice regimens. It wasn't always so.

Hawaii Symphony has new contract
On the eve of announcing its third season, the Hawai'i Symphony Orchestra extended the current agreement with its musicians, allowing for "incremental" growth of the organization. The two-year contract extension promises the musicians a minimum of 14 weeks of employment a year, up two weeks from the previous contract, said Jonathan Parrish, symphony executive director. Salaries remain the same for the first year -- $1,050 per week -- and rise slightly in the second year.

Lorin Maazel dies
Lorin Maazel, who began his career as a child prodigy and went on to conduct many of the world's great orchestras, has died at the age of 84. Maazel died in Virginia of complications from pneumonia. He had been at his home, Castleton Farms, preparing for his annual music festival, according to organizers. His death came a month after he resigned with a "heavy heart" from his position as music director of the Munich Philharmonic, citing health concerns.
