"I’ve been trying to get into a full time orchestra for the past 20 years. I’d guess I’ve been to over 200 auditions. It can be pretty heartbreaking. I tried out for the New York Philharmonic four times.

But believe or not, I still have a certain amount of optimism about the process. And I think I’m getting better."
