'' Spitalny's All - Girl orchestra was founded 6 yeai's ago but rounded into its present featured state only after Spitalny had personally auditioned more than 2,000 promising young musicians. "When I first made known the fact that I intended forming an all-giri band even my best friends thought I was losing my mind," Snitalny says. "Now they look at it 'in a different light. "Women memorize faster than men for one thing and their loyalty knows no bounds if you are honest with them. My girls .work hard and conscientiously and they never allow individual temperaments to interfere with the ultimate success of the orchestra." The greater majority of the girls in the band . came .from small towns, which fact Phil explains by saying: "It's probably due to" the fact that they have less to do than girls in big cities and thus devote more time to practice."
