Ken, most of the shows in Reno and Las Vegas are done with the
musicians several floors below the performance arena. So the
Times piece does not come as a suprise to those who have played
that way for some years now.

Subject: [kl] Playing Upstairs

Here's an amazing story from the NY Times. Since most of the
music, even
from a live orchestra, comes out through speakers, it makes sense
to add
an extra row or two of audience seats, reduce the size of the pit
and
put the "bulky" instruments someplace else. For The Producers,
the
harpist and percussionist are on the 7th floor, playing darts
between
their riffs.

Am I the only one who's appalled? For those of us who play
shows, how
would you feel if the entire orchestra played somewhere else?
