My First big-time studio job in New York.

As I went out the door and walked down the hall, after my lesson with Joe Allard at the Juilliard School, Joe peaks his head out the door and says, “Oh, by the way Dave, you are going to get a call to play this weekend in the Bell Telephone Hour orchestra for the live TV show. (I, of course, knew that Joe Allard was the 1st clarinet player in the orchestra for years –he also doubled on alto saxophone when the orchestra would change over to the big band music.)
