What value years of training?

This story is of the parlous conditions of orchestral musicians in the United States. Things are better in Europe where there is more public subsidy and less reliance on the whims of capitalists. However, the pressures on classical musicians are increasing here.

Perhaps we will revert to music-making being restricted to amateurs, with orchestras, except for a few specialists, being populated by part-timers.
