The La Crosse Symphony Orchestra has received 226 applicants from all over the world for the position of music director and conductor to replace Amy Mills.

Jim Gallagher, chairman of the conductor search committee, said he is stunned by the overwhelming interest in the job.
“Everyone is flabbergasted by the quantity and quality of applicants,” Gallagher said. “We’re not sure what it means. This position is really a part-time job that pays in the range of $45,000 to $55,000.”

I didn’t even know there was a La Crosse Symphony Orchestra until now. (They have a very ugly site, don’t you think?)

Another roster to be added to my double reed musicians in US orchestra page*. Eventually. (Taxes are calling out to me. I’m trying to plug my ears, but I know I have to hop to it!)
