Drew McManus writes that another blogger, Jeff Tsai, calls the members of a ROPA orchestra “part-time musicians” here. Drew proceeds to write about why using the term part-time musicians is not a good idea. Both his post, and Jeff Tsai’s response to that post are worth reading.
Well, I suppose I’m guilty of something similar. I have joked about those on the “outside” having “real jobs” while I have my playing job.
So I’m going to write about this after I get home from my rehearsal. (Right now I’d better leave or I won’t get parked and into the hall in time!)
