It would be interesting to see if you include all major and minor
symphonies, including the National Symphony, in such a brief informal
survey. As a person with a Doctorate, you must know that, without the
proper pool, your informal survey is meaningless. Statistics must be
fairly and objectively presented. Your's is beginnig to look like a
search for statistics that will support your position......not at all
scientific or helpful to the members of the list.
