A tragedy without tears

Original post made on Oct 23, 2009

I felt it should be mentioned that the WBO orchestra is a professional, union, tenured group.The conductors change every show, but with few exceptions, the orchestra does not. Some of us have been playing with the orchestra for over 20 years! I think the management of the WBO deserves credit for maintaining this dedicated group over the years.We love playing opera and look forward to each production. Wish all of the West Bay( and beyond) would come to see and hear us.
