Listen to a conversation between a student and a music director.
Yes, can I help you?
Hi, my name’s Eric Paterson, I’m a journalism student, I wanted to ask you about the orchestra...
I’m sorry, Eric. But the orchestra is only open to music majors.
Really? Well, see...
But the policy is changing next year, after that, if you’ve taken three music courses, you will be able to audition.
Well, I have taken some music courses and I do play the double bass.So maybe that’s something to think about,
but actually I was here about something else.
Oh, sorry. It’s I...I get that question all the time. So...
That’s okay. The thing is I work for Magna-the school paper and I am reporting on last week’s concert.
Now I went to it and I really enjoyed it, but now I’m looking for some background knowledge.
Well, I can refer you to some of the students in the orchestra if you’d like a young musician’s point of view.
Uh...I guess that might be helpful. But...um...I’m really looking for a little bit of scholarly prospective.
