This chapter details events after Edna Phillips' acceptance as a member of the Philadelphia Orchestra. Phillips did not hear another word about her audition for over a month. Then, toward the end of February 1930, she got a call from the office of Arthur Judson, manager of the Philadelphia Orchestra, telling her to report to his office immediately after her Curtis Symphony Orchestra rehearsal. Upon arriving at the Packard Building she was immediately shown into the office of Judson, who did not seem at all pleased to see her. Frowning, the imposing impresario motioned for her to step into his office and pointed to a contract on his desk. “Sign here,” he commanded. “You're taking Vincent Fanelli's (the principal harpist) place”.
