Playing against the odds

Posted at 4:28 PM on April 7, 2006 by Don Lee (69 Comments)

The odds are about 17 to one—a lot better than Powerball. But still: Would you invest tens of thousands of dollars (and practice room hours) to become a conservatory grad if you knew those were your chances of landing a good orchestra job?

For anyone facing that prospect, there’s must reading just out in The Los Angeles Times, an article on “The State of Music Education.” It makes the point that 2,700 music performance majors graduate each year, but lately there have been no more than 160 orchestra openings.

The story also points out that there’s life outside the orchestra for these young musicians. They can become educators, writers or administrators and still keep a hand in music. As far as I’m concerned, anytime you have a chance to work in a field you love, you’re a pretty lucky person.
