Hi. I'm doing a little cross-hop from my usual haunt in the clarinet Bboard. I hope you won't mind.

A recent member posted about "Standardization" in the clarinet world, maintaining that there is basically too much conformity in the equipment used by clarinetists and the way they approach the clarinet conceptually. If you're interested in the full context of the question I'm about to ask here, you can read the thread beginning with http://test.woodwind.org/oboe/BBoard/read.html?f=1&i=489847&t=489847.

At the end of his original post, the OP writes:

"My inspiration from writing this post was learning about the Philadelphia Orchestra oboe audition in 2019 and the uproar it caused in the oboe world. If you don't know about this, just ask any of your oboe friends and they will instantly know and tell you about it."

As a Philadelphian and Philadelphia Orchestra subscriber, I heard some of the local discussion that went on here once Woodhams announced his retirement and the search for a successor began officially. But I'm interested, my curiosity piqued by this poster's suggestion, what the oboe world outside Philadelphia thought about the process (and the result). And whether or not the departure represented by Phillipe Tondre from the Tabuteau-DeLancie-Woodhams tradition attracted attention in the oboe world at large.
