This week's contestant is the director of the American Heritage Orchestra Maestro Antonio Luigi Salvatore, from -- no, not Italy -- Bridgeport, Ohio, It's probably a big risk for a professional conductor to compete, and he handled himself,,,well, half-respectably. The composer style is distinctive, and he did a good job analyzing it. As for the hidden song, it's pretty clear, so it was surprising that the name completely escaped him, though he could hum the tune. Happily I got both.
