When Juilliard announced auditions for the orchestra to accompany Elton at New York's Radio City in July, every single instrumentalist in the Royal Academy of Music signed up, noted a press release on April 27, 2004.

Nonetheless, according to Principal Curtis Price, performing with the singer is abound to place ''special demands on everyone--on technique, stamina and showmanship.''

Price added that he was grateful for the opportunity. ''No other rock'n'roll superstar is doing more for charity.''
