BTS Episode 10 - Andrew Brady

JT and Matt speak with Andrew Brady, Principal Bassoon of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.

Andrew Brady, principal bassoon of the Atlanta Symphony joins BTS to and walks us through the two times he took the Atlanta audition. He explains how the little things (maybe not so little!) make the difference and what he changed between the first audition when he made it to semi-finals, and when he won the second audition. Did it help?  Andrew talks about preparation for an upcoming audition, why an excerpt is on the list, and of course we talk reeds. Andrew finishes up giving his most honest and candid answers to racial issues in orchestras, auditions being screened or not, and the tenure process.
