  1. I was unable to attend any of the concerts in which the concertmaster candidates played but based on their bios and De Main’s judgment, I’d say they made the right choice. Best of luck to her and the MSO.

  3. Greenholtz was my choice. She will bring youth and vitality to the orchestra. I hope that there will be no hard feelings between her and Beia.
