He offered a new set of criteria to replace the current orchestral audition model that he dubbed ACTORS. Dworkin does not think it will be adopted any time soon, but offers this as one of many possible solutions to increase the diversity in American orchestras.
-The A stands for artistic excellence. It should remain as the most critically important criterion in the audition process.
-The C stands for collaborative ability. It is important to know how musicians collaborate with their music director, with each other.
-The T stands for teaching skills.
-The O stands for originality and creativity. There are ways to adjudicate this in the selection process.
-The R stands for repertoire knowledge. Diversity and inclusion does not end with musicians in the orchestra. It should also include the music that is played in the performance programs.
-The S stands for Strategic/Cultural Relevance. After a musician qualifies for all of the first 5 criteria, orchestras need to assess the cultural relevance of a candidate based on its mission and the community in which it exists.

Comment by email:
Hello Bill, I don't understand why these string quartets don't play all of my String Quartet No. 1. Selecting to play only the famous 2nd movement reflects on their unwillingness to meet the challenges of the other two movements. The Catalyst String Quartet has chosen to play the entire string quartet of Samuel Barber that is less demanding than my work. Reviewers have consistently stated that my String Quartet is better than Barber's work. Best regards. George [George Walker]
