    If you know of anyone doing the London or New York auditions for the Brazilian Symphony Orchestra on May 16-18 and 20-23, 2011 respectively, please inform them of an international boycott of these auditions endorsed by the International Federation of Musicians. The orchestra illegally sacked 42 of its 82 musicians and there is an ongoing process (including at the Federal level) to bring this orchestra, its Music Director and its Board Chairman to account. Please pass this on.
