I just got a "thanks but no thanks" letter from an audition I took. Didn't come as a surprise, (I think I can pinpoint my crash) and I feel much better about it now that I've had some time to think about the price of gas, winter driving conditions and the distance for a per-service job. (3 hours one way). My question is this: the letter thanks me for my audition...for principal trombone. I auditioned right before trombones began (there was one more trumpet candidate, then the 'bones). If they mixed up my results, how possible is it that they mixed up other results? Should I write a letter or call them about this or is this a sign of a poorly run group and I should let it go? My worry is that someone else is reading a similar letter that should be reading a "you're hired" letter. I don't want to come off as a whiner or obnoxious, but, again, if my results got mixed up, someone else may have been mixed up that should have won a job and didn't. But then again, if that's the case, they will find that out pretty quick when rehearsals for the first concert begin.
