    So, would you say that (generally) the best way to make contacts is through the phone or via e-mail?

    How do you get the phone number?

    I looked up the New Haven Symphony. The orchestra players are listed so I took the name and Googled him. I think He lives in New York so my next try will be directory assistance. I could still come up empty.

    I'm going to put some time into the search. I'll let you know how it goes.



    I just tried directory assistance and couldn't come up with a number. I did find where he teaches with Google so maybe on Monday I'll try that.

    If you are in the same local look in your union directory. Otherwise, use the afm's online directory.

    I just looked and only his email is in the online directory, so use your local one.

    B15M;

    If you are still in need of some contact numbers for some of the Connecticut orchestras, send me a PM-with the people you wish to contact, I should be able to help you out with most phone numbers.

    So far I made two calls. Both weren't home.
    I left a message to call me back at one and I said that I would call back the other.

    I am saving the third because I might learn something on the first two calls and I will have a fresh start.

    Thank you all for the help, I will keep you posted.

    B- (and anyone else considering auditioning): I saw this and thought of you. MyAuditions is offering an audition critique. You submit a sample/excerpt, and will recieve comments on your performance. One of the commitee members is Kevin Good. Head over and dig around...it's in their forum section. This might prove helpful in your preparations, even if it doesn't pan into subbing/extra list.

    Here's a link to the Brass Comittee forum:
