  • Herzlichen Glückwunsch.
    Norman, any word on Adela Frasineanu, who joined the VSOO at (I believe) the same time?

    • Adela is still showing as second violin on the orchestra web-site as does Benjamin (Members of Opera Orchestra)

  • Miss Frasineanu also played well in this audition but Mr Morrison received more points. She remains a confirmed member of the second violin section and is awaiting tenure with the VPO, as is Mr Morrison.
