When Erich Vollmer became executive director of the Orange County Philharmonic Society in 1984, the number of visiting orchestras that the organization brought in each year could be counted on one hand, and you'd still have a finger or two left over.

Essentially, that meant importing the Los Angeles Philharmonic and maybe another orchestra or two for occasional variety.

Last year, a tidal wave of public interest in the opening of the Orange County Performing Arts Center virtually guaranteed local groups financial success. But as the Center's second year approaches and the novelty wears off, arts groups are rapidly reaching a make-or-break point in their efforts to remain at the Center. "I feel we must make it in the Center--or we don't make it," said Rita Majors, business manager of the Pacific Chorale.

Together, they control funds well in excess of $15 million annually. In booking their seasonal rosters of artists--particularly young ones--they affect hundreds of lives and careers. In choosing--as they must do with clocklike regularity--one composer or one string quartet or one pianist over another, they are taste makers. Powerful taste makers.
