“When our trumpet player left the band abruptly, I had 2 weeks to find a replacement for a 3-week tour. I emailed everyone from the heads of major college music departments to working professionals all over the nation. The fastest and best solution came when I clicked the ‘Hire a Musician’ button on the CalArts web site. The staff connected me with the perfect player literally that day. I don’t know why every department in the world doesn’t copy this feature…a thousand thanks CalArts! You saved my gig!”
