Would you be surprised to learn orchestra jobs are union jobs? I was. Drew McManus, an orchestra consultant from Chicago, takes us up on stage and behind the music stands to describe what it’s really like to be a paid musician. Did you know, for example, it wasn’t unheard of back in the day a musician could get fired for sneezing? And how do you sit next to the same colleague, who happens to annoy you very much, for years -- without your performance suffering or the audience noticing? It’s a fascinating study in management and dispute resolution with larger implications for all of life.
