Surplus to requirements?

  1. Hi all

    Just wondering if, in their wisdom, any MD's have decided that you aren't required for a particular test piece. I only ask because a few friends were chatting away last night and the subject was brought up. I remember 1 occasion when we decided to go to a national contest (begins with a P and is in North Wales) and our MD decided to just use 1 BBb for the piece, mainly because the other player was:- a) not up to scratch on the piece
    b) not technically "au fait" playing-wise
    c) permanently late for rehearsals

    This is not meant to be detrimeantal to the aformentioned player, but I have experienced a couple of times myself, and I am just interested...... any funny anecdotes most welcome.
