French horn player settles lawsuit against Roanoke Symphony

The Roanoke Times reported this morning on the settlement of the breach of contract claims of a French horn player who was discharged from her employment with the Roanoke Symphony Orchestra, apparently for "bad performance."

Reading earlier reports about the case made me wonder whether if the case was tried, the plaintiff would be allowed to bring her horn to court, play a few pieces, and have an expert opine on whether her playing was good. (I guess not, but when I was in high school, I spent a few days doing just that, under rules like these.)
