A group of five can perform Beethoven's Fifth in about 30 minutes. How long will it take a full orchestra of 60 people?
@tj @furgar no: 30 minutes.
Yes: 30 minutes for accommodating late arrivals, 60 minutes to negotiate solos and section lead, 30 minutes rehearsal, 60 minute required union break, 4 days sit out to protest the conditions of the rehearsal hall, 4 months in binding arbitration for recording session rights, 2 years pause for investigation of sexual harassment charges. Never. They never play it.
