How NOT to get the interview

The current issue of Podium Notes (from the Conductors Guild, Inc.) includes this great primer for people seeking a job in front of an orchestra.  Much of what’s included is applicable to any of us who wish to conduct any ensemble, and some of it is also immediately transportable to anyone applying for any job.

I add this great article to my list of audition appearance tips from this summer.
