Young director Rodrigo De Souza is appointed chief of the New York Symphony Orchestra, which he wants to modernize, as ancient former maestro Thomas is retired by the board. The musicians speculate about the future, while indulging in a wild night-life, also with sexy Juliards dancers. Young Oboeist Hailey, getting by as tutor, is late due to traffic for Rodrigo's blind audition, but plays anyway and seduces him, as he was still around, bumping an assistant.
