BTS Episode 27 - Ricardo Morales

JT & Matt speak with Ricardo Morales, Principal Clarinet of the Philadelphia Orchestra.

Ricardo Morales, Principal Clarinet of the Philadelphia Orchestra is our guest on this episode of Behind the Screen. Before winning his position with Philly, Ricardo was Principal Clarinet of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra. He talks about his experiences with both auditions as well as sitting behind the screen when listening to auditions. He talks about how to prepare for an audition and what he believes the panel is listening for and what is the differentiating factor when choosing one candidate over another. Ricardo points out that boxing and auditions are very similar. As he says: “there is a very fine line between kicking butt, and getting your butt kicked.”  We loved talking and laughing with Ricardo and you’ll love listening to him on Behind the Screen.
